All you need to do here is put the interface into promiscuous mode
and then log the packets (FWIW one of the more common ways of
grabbing other people's passwords).  Common tools enclude snoop
(Solaris), tcpdump (Linux), iptraf, ethereal, pcap, and a large host
of others (see freshmeat).  I typically use iptraf and ethereal
here, with one of the libpcap based tools if I need extensive
logging or replay (been a while, forget which one I use).
