Ethernet packets on DE-4 board

Can someone please tell me a way to receive Ethernet traffic on a DE-4 board? I've gone through the example provided in the tutorial, using TSE on DE-4, and it works fine. Now I need to receive actual network traffic on the DE-4. What is the easiest way to do this? 

 

Thanks a lot in advance. :D

Your question isn't clear: if TSE on DE-4 is working fine, what more would you like to accomplish?

I'm sorry my qiestion wasn't so clear. What I've got working is the example provided in the TSE in DE-4 tutorial, the one where you have a loopback set on eth0 port. What I want to do now is to get Ethernet packets from another source (like a separate PC).  

 

Following code is the one I've got working now.

Thanks a lot for your time and suggestions Ted! :D
