Have you tried using a traffic trap? As in, grab an old machine, get two
ethernet ports working on it, create a level 2 bridge between the ports, run
tshark on the bridge, and plug the Open SuSE 10.1 workstation into the
bridge, and plug the other port on the bridge into the network.
This will give you an almost perfectly clear look at the traffic, even if
the SuSE box has a rootkit installed.
