We have several computers where I work and we want to control them. We need more protection for some computers and we need to control use of internet and some other things. Which network monitoring tools we should use?
Try net monitor for employees its easy and useful can download from filestube with key if u dont wanna buy
Well, I would like to recommend Capsa Free:
If you are looking to monitor the network, I would suggest taking a look at WhatsUp Gold (http://www.whatsupgold.com). What kind of control are you looking for on the desktop machines?
alternatives can be found here:
Network monitoring ~ as the name suggests ~ only monitors network traffic.
If you need to control in & outbound access you'll need at least a firewall. For more efficiant control you'll also need a proxy (e.g. squid) or L7-filter (e.g. Exinda Appliance) to prevent traffic like bittorrent, skype which will work even behind a firewall.
