From memory :

brctl adder br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 eth1
ip address add <address> dev br0

There might be a need for some link up commands, it’s a long time since I last did this.

or in /etc/network/interfaces 

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
  bridge_ports eth0 eth1
  address <address>
  gateway <address>

In either case you now have a bridge which is functionally the same as a hardware network switch. Packets will be forwarded automatically as needed. And you can sniff packets on the physical interfaces as they pass through.
