Some not so old attacks explore protocols like STP/VTP/DTP/HSRP. One may

let the attacker sniff traffic from remote broadcast domains as far as they
participate on the same VTP domain.

I think you misread the information, this part of it to be exact:
Examples of spoofing:
packet sniffs ____on link between the two end points____, and can therefore
pretend to be one end of the connection "
The answer to your question is you can't.
You can only do this on a machine that the traffic is flowing through.
Hence the name, "man-in-the-middle".
You need to comprimise a machine between the endpoints, such as a firewall,
router, or proxy, or one of the endpoints themselves so you can sourceroute
through a machine of your choosing (though if you have comprimised an
endpoint, this isn't necessary). You then run ettercap, and can even read
their SSL/SSH conversations and change data.
man-in-the-middle is a wicked attack. It's also fairly difficult to get
if the machines concerned are patched, up to date, and securely configured,
so often they are not.
On ms proxy server, all you need to do is comprimise the proxy server.
The session ID's, if on query string, are logged, even when they are via
you can easily hijack a session that way, simply by looking at the proxy
recent entries, in a lot of cases (note: I am not sure if ms proxy server
this on more recent versions, and I am sure it's possible to turn this
off). No packet analysis necessary.
