This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is it possible to use the SWG VA with VM Workstation 9 in SPAN/TAP monitor mode? I have VMNET0 bridged directly to the physical NIC that's attached to the mirroring port on my switch. The host is running Linux and ntop confirms that port mirroring is working.

TIA

Mark

I don't think a SWG VA on VMware workstation can work as SPAN/TAP monitor mode. Because the virtual network card of the SWG VA is the same to a physical network card.

Symantec Web Gateway requires 1 physical NIC for each virtual NIC on the SWG as well as their own virtual switches (usualy required to be in promiscious mode).
