Is there a program that can monitor how many bytes have been downloaded and uploaded in total since conncection (to the net)?

For examle, I want to download a max. of 900Mb in a session (since connection or program reset) and I need the program to display a message or ideally automatically disable the connection. It would also be good if I could periodically check how much data has been downloaded in Mb's. I'm on a single PC at home, on 750k cable, running Windows 2000.

If there is not a program to do this then any ideas on anything that would help?

I'm constantly transceiving large graphics files and RARs to colleagues and don't want to be cut off by my ISP who have a 1Gb limit on daily transfer.

The simplest solution would be to open up your Local Area Connection status window.  This tells you the number of bytes sent and received since the connection has been up, but it will not send you any kind of alert.

If I were you, I would just keep it open on your desktop.

Hi Hehewith,

That only shows packets, is one packet 1kb?
