RE: packet sniffers?

To be clear: snort is an IDS, not a packet sniffer. It uses packet sniffing
technology, but it is an intrusion detection system by nature and by intent.
 
Take care,

There should be accessible sniffers for Linux that can run in command line 
mode and redirect the results to a file which you can read.

I have used snort, which is a command line packet sniffer which accepts 
creating complex rules for filtering. It works under Windows but there may 
be a Linux version also. I don't know if snort isn't actually a Unix program

originally...

You can also search on search.cpan.org for "sniffer" and you will find more 
modules that could help you, like Net::Packet::Dump for example.

HTH.
