comment Sniffing at work- How to detect
I'm fairly certain that "man-in-the-middle" sniffing of SSL connections is ONLY possible if they company has replaced the root certificates on your workstation. Otherwise any kind of "man-in-the-middle" attack against SSL would cause your browser to give you an invalid certificate error.

comment Why does multicasting make the WAN inaccessible?
It's unlikely to be going across your WAN link, unless your WAN is bridged (rather than routed).

comment Why does multicasting make the WAN inaccessible?
Not to be terribly pedantic, but the traffic you're seeing is still being multicast, not broadcast. It's just that your switch is by default flooding the multicast frames to every port.

comment Generating simulated log messages
I'm aware of logger, what I was hoping for is a way of generating log data that's formatted so that it looks like valid logs for specific devices.

comment Help me fight this spaghetti monster [cabling]
I definately second the recommendation to get a good tone and probe tester like the one you linked to. Plugging and unplugging cables while looking to see if the light changed it unbelievably time consuming and error prone. Not to mention it's not much use for tracing inactive cables. :-) With a good tone and probe tester you should be able to find where your cable goes in minutes.
