The tcpsound utility plays sounds in response to network traffic, making it possible for a user to literally listen to a network. It forks a pseudo terminal in which to run tcpdump, parses that output, and plays a wide variety of user-configurable sounds. By interpreting the output in a pseudo terminal, users can first SSH to a remote host if desired.
