Cool that's a good idea. But in any case, even without managed

Sniffing's a different discussion. ARP spoofing's more of a man-in-the-middle and/or denial-of-service attack.


There are variations where you spoof a MAC address to the switch so it sends you some packets intended for a different port, but TCP retries will soon send another copy that keep the original destination from noticing that anything is wrong.
