Come on, folks, this discussion has gone beyond noise into the realms
of absurdium.

TDR's only work with coax.   10BaseT greatly complicates things.

Furthermore a TDR only can find unauthorized taps.  The original
question did not say "how can I find unauthorized taps on my wire".
It was "how can I detect a sniffer".  These are two very different
questions. 

So can we all please shut up about this topic and get back to the
subject of the list?
