in case you haven't used tcpdump:

tcpdump -i eth0

will dump all inbound/outbound traffic on the nic.   once you start
using advanced functionality, the syntax stinks.  but just monitoring
traffic is easy enough.  :)

also, i forgot to ask -- are you going through any kind of firewall,
proxy or masquerade?
