dist sniffer 4.5

   I'm am having a real  problem trying to get the fiber gig interfaces on a dist. sniffer to collect data .  The nic shows when it asks you what nic you want to select .  Using LX gbics and  multimode fiber .  The link comes up and the span session on the switch indicates it is passing data down the fiber but the sniffer never sees it .  Have checked in hardware manager and all the nics indicate they are working properly .  If I switch it over to the  fastethernet (copper) nic  this  works fine but no matter what i try I can't get the fiber to collect properly .   Have tried different fibers and gbics to no avail .  It has a link but does not collect any data on the gig nic . Any ideas on what to to try or change ?  thanks for any help .  This is one of the industrial network general hardware sniffers .
