isn't that a bird?

All seriousness aside, I completely failed to get Egress Ingress 
Outgress.  I know I set the source port to BOTH but the dest port wanted 
to know which of the options to use and I wasn't sure if I needed ANY of 
them.  The docs I looked at weren't able to enlighten me.

Ok, now this is SCS (seriously cool stuff) to me.
Just started reading about flows.  Any site recommendations?  I know 
ntop can be set for two different kinds (I can't remember which at the 
moment) but do the switches have to output it?  Is it exclusive to one 
brand, like everything else?
