RE: Monitor XP (ICS ) client connections?

Dave:

    For a few dollars your friend can go out and purchase a small router
(Linksys, netgear, etc) that does NAT and has logging capabilities. This
would be the user level quick solution because it will identify the IP
address of the machine and the sites visited in a simple to read
interface. Most devices will even e-mail you the logs.
Hope this helps,

Harry

Hi Dave,

is he looking for specific sites, or does he want to analyze traffic to
check what his employees are up to? If he is looking for specific sites,
a
simple logging proxy server with grep would be the simplest. If he needs
some kind of interface where he can click through the sites that his
employees have visited, then I think Edward Miller's suggestions should
be
fine.

It just depends what he is monitoring for.

Cheers,

Chris Meidinger

  A friend who runs a small business (across the continent 
from me, currently) is using XP with connection sharing, and 
has expressed concern that some of his employees may be 
endangering the network by visiting URLs they shouldn't.  
He'd like to be able to do some basic monitoring of the ICS 
connection, without getting into full-blown sniffing and 
packet disassembly.

  Can anyone recommend (or, based on experience, recommend 
against!) tools for this job?  It doesn't have to be in real 
time, it's okay if it sits in the background collecting info 
and he just checks it every now and then.
