FYI – I got it working tonight.  Pretty straight forward once you have a distributed virtual switch running.


ESXi host

-          dvSwitch

o   dvPortGroup

§  Source DNS server interface connected here

§  LAN2 of the DNSFW appliance here (set to NOT connect at startup for now)

o   Configure port mirroring from source port to destination port (I did ingress/egress)

-          vSwitch

o   LAN1 of the DNSFW appliance here

o   Reporting server here


Works like a champ!  I do have a virtual Cisco router to help route in my environment as well.



No physical gear required (save my wifi router to the Internet and the ESXi host).
