How do I sniff in a switched environment with Dsniff?

How to change kernel variable to make Dsniff performance correctly?

If the switch you are on is good enough and depending on how you have your network setup then you can probably set all the traffic to to also go to the port you are on. I forget the technical term for that.

I don't think you need any kernel changes to get dsniff to work. You just have to have root on the box.
