Try http://www.nanog.org/mtg-9910/robert.html for an overview of
how a system like this would work. The last issue of Phrack had
something like that in the article 'things to do in ciscoland when
you are dead.'
The main thing for sniffing using routers and switches is mirroring
ports, or vlans onto a segment you have your sniffer running on.
Some IP based stuff can be done with GRE tunnels, static routes,
and some kung-fu, which I think is in that phrack article..
