NOTE: Bypass settings are only relevant when NetScope is running as an in-line appliance and is using a network bypass card. This is not relevant for NetScope in mirror mode.
The Bypass menu item will show the bypass status of NetScope. NetScope is online shows that NetScope is out of bypass mode and is collecting and computing the data of network packets flowing into and out of the network bypass card.
NetScope is bypassed indicates that NetScope is in bypass mode and that all traffic is hard wired to pass directly through the network bypass card. To change modes simply select Enter Bypass or Exit Bypass then click Save.
