From time to time I used a USB Ethernet port:
Generally they are about 25 USD. You might be able to find them on Ebay
or other places for less than that. You might as well get a USB 3.0, since
it will work with USB 2.0 ports, but USB 2.0 will not support 1
Gbit/second, whereas USB 3.0 will. On the other hand if the networking
flow is not 1 Gbit/second then USB 2.0 might work fine.

I'm looking into Zeek and unfortunately I don't have a second ethernet
port on my main system, so it's not clear how I'd run a span port off
my main switch to grab traffic.
What hardware do people recommend for a zeek data collection node? I
guess I could spin up my old WRAP board (http://www.pcengines.ch
which I used as my main router for years before I replaced it
recently. But it's not super fast. It's got three 1gb ports, and 4gb
of RAM with a 1Ghz single core AMD CPU. So it might do the job, esp
since I can install Debian Buster on there without too much trouble.
