Not sure of that particular application.  But you can use ethereal to
filter for telnet and rlogin connections only (keeps the amount of data
to reasonable level).  

You will still need to setup your switch to mirror the ports you want to
monitor to the interface of the system running ethereal or tcpdump or
snort or any of a number of sniffer packages that are available.
