Mirroring and Monitoring Ports on a Catalyst 2950

I would like to have the traffic from all of the ethernet ports (on my Catalyst 2950) also sent to a monitor port. Can this be done? I've seen a command like - (config)# monitor session 1 destination filter source

Am I on the right path? I would I like to send the traffic to a port so I can put a packet sniffer on that port and log the traffic. Thanks.

It is called SPAN (Switch Port Analyzer)

Yeah, this drives me crazy - every switch seems to be slightly different.

I seem to recall last time I tried this on the 2950, I discovered I could only have one monitor session at a time - it was probably an old IOS or something, because the doco seems to say I should be able to have multiple sessions:
