Hey,

Does anyone know any software that can monitor internet traffic from each PC on the LAN summarizing it on the server and giving full details on each PC activities.

I have the Internet connection which goes through hardware firewall (it is a separate device on the network). The only chance how I can monitor traffic is to collect traffic data from each machine.
I am sure there should be a kind of software to have both server and client part.
If you know any just let me know.
I appreciate you help.

Thanks,
