I don't believe that SW has the facility but all is not lost.
Have a look at a tool called Ethereal. It is a Sniffer/packet analyser written by Network engineers for network engineers and best of all its FREE.(www.ethereal.com). I have used a few in my time and this compares well with all of them. There is also a user forum with hints and tips etc.
EE Toolsets do not have any sniffer programs. If you want a good program at no expense, use Ethereal. This sniffer application is open source, runs on most operating systems (Unix, Windows) and is equal to costly programs such as Network Associates Sniffer Pro.

Thanks Everyone. I am currently looking at your recommendation.
if you have the $$, www.opnet.com's ITGURU has the best capture solution on the market. It's paid for itself 20 times over... It's an agent on the server that captures when you tell it to and transfers the capture back to the console.. You can capture from several tiers at the same time and merge the traces. It will also import all other capture formats...
It also does extensive modeling...
It's our #1 IT tool....
Solarwinds is #2...

Can anyone tell me if the engineer tools have the ability to packet sniff / capture? If not is there a good recommendation out there?
Actually, While Ethereal is good, a better bet is Packetlyzer which has Ethereal as the engine but a but a very "Etherpeek" like front end and it's FREE
Syngress has abook on how to use Ethereal which is pretty good.
