I assume you are using linux. I have done some experimenting on my home
network with a program called ettercap. It does a pretty good job. It
can crack some implements of https and ssh1. It also seemed to do a
pretty good job sniffing user names and passwords. You can get it here

Subject: sniffing packets on a switch

I am interested in what people recommend using to
sniff packets on a switch. I have heard that TCPdump
has some problems doing this. Thank you ahead of the
time for any assistance.
