port monitor, something for the pro's!

hey ...

is it possible to open up a socket and "pipe" it to a stdout and make it echo all incoming traffic? I would like to see what kind of data different monitor programs in my network sends (for logging).

thing is that I've got several platforms in my network and they can all send data in different ways, so it would be great if one machine could gather data into a logfile.

is it possible to do with pure shell commands? and more, how do I know which port a program is using?
