Any LAN monitoring programm ? (except NetWatcher)

We'd like to have logs for all LAN connections :
who was connected, when and what did he download
(exactly as any FTP server does).
Is it possible ?

You can't do this in Win98, but you can do this in Windows NT 4.0. What are you using for a server connection?

I can't ? Whau .. That's a pity... :(((((((((
Answer : We're using LAN + proxy (no modems at all) for accessing the Internet.
(No proxy for MS Network, of course)

I don't think I can understand your question ... What server are you talking about ?
Every LAN should have DHCP, DNS , router and so on.
What I have is a university LAN and my PC is connected to it via 3COM network
adapter and socket in the wall. All people connected (MS call them "Network
Neigboorhood") are sharing their disks using MS Network, so me too.
That's why I'm looking for a prog who'll log all connections to my shared resources.
It's a built-in function in NT, I know, but I prefer to stay with 98 ...
If "NetWatcher" can show who's currently connected to my PC it can be some prog
that'll do the same with one little feature : logging all ..

You've answered my question. The server that I was referring to is at the other end of the cable that's in your wall!

Unless you can setup your system as some form of portal, there's no way to log this type of activity as 98 isn't designed that way. Netwatcher will let you know who is connected at the actual time of connection, but it has no control features that would enable logging. If your system was setup as some form of server/workstation, then you could implement this, but otherwise your stuck.
