Dear All,

Is there any tool/method that allow me to detect the IPs of users who are using IM (Instant Messaging i.e. MSN 
messenger, Yahoo messenger, ICQ, etc) and P2P (Peer-2-Peer programs such Kazaa) in our network?


NeVO from Tenable Network Security (my employer, btw), is a great tool for detecting these sort of client apps. Of course, you need to deploy NeVO in a spot where it will see the traffic. Check out http://www.tenablesecurity.com/products/nevo.shtml for a 30-day demo.
