The usual recommendation would be to use Wireshark
Problem one is that it can only analyze the traffic on the computer it sits on.
Problem 2 is that a switch is passing the traffic only between the nodes that are talking, if you would plug a PC with Wireshark installed to the switch it would only see broadcast messages on the network.

Solution one, use a hub instead of a switch. Sorry, going back to the stone age is hardly a solution.
So, the solutions are either to get a switch where you can monitor traffic directly, or program it to mirror a port to create a data tap.

What switch is it you have? Sometimes "unmanaged" switches aren't totally stupid, or rather sitting somewhere in between smart and stupid switches.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
