I'm pretty sure your Linux system is connected to the 7609 via a switch (either separate access switch or directly to a switch blade in the 7609). So, you need to configure a mirror/span port on that switch (or use a physical TAP).

If you want to capture 'remote' traffic take a look at RSPAN.

Another method would be a GRE tunnel to redirect the traffic
