For *nix boxes, IPTRAF, one of many such, provides source:
http://cebu.mozcom.com/riker/iptraf/

For Windows boxes, WINPCAP is the choice (source and examples):
http://winpcap.polito.it/

Note that COMPLETE traffic monitoring requires placing the NIC in promiscuous mode and that some NICs can be permanently configured to not permit promiscuous mode.

Note further that both of these are monitors only and neither permits stream modifications nor intimates how stream modification can be done.
