Mirroring is enabled using the "Ports / port mirroring" page of the web interface, and seems to work perfectly. At the time of writing (Oct 2007) this seems to be a particularly good value switch for this purpose, costing much less than many of the alternatives.
New ProCurve switch (introduced in 2009?) that is gigabit on all ports and supports port mirror. This switch is somewhat similar to the 1700-8 and is also relatively low cost. Unlike on the 1700-8, the mirror destination port will not function as a normal port; this may necessitate a second Ethernet connection to the computer running Wireshark. There is also an older version, the 1800-8G, that this switch replaces.
