Oh, and Linux compatibility is MUST.

I've looked at Ethereal (now wireshark) but it would only work if I'm behind a hub seeing as switches send packets to individual MAC addresses.
if you have access to the switch you can port forward or in the cisco world, doa span. this would send the traffic you needed to the port with the monitor active. most managed switches has something like this on it
