Check out ethereal.  It's an X11 based app similar to NetXray, though without 
all the eye-candy.  It uses tcpdump and libpcap.

It's pretty good, though if you're not familiar with tcpdump, you'd better 
familiarize yourself with it, since ethereal uses tcpdump syntax for it's 
filter expression syntax.
