IPCop Traffic Monitoring


Have IPCop and want to see who is using our internet traffic.

How can I do this, i've enabled transparent proxy, but the logs don't show bytes, how dumb.

Also I don't just want web traffic, I want everything, such as P2P / IM.

How can I do this?

IPCop is a firewall, but you want a monitor program.

for a program to tell you what is beinh done, I think you can use, added to your firewall:

Snort (It's an IDS, but also can separate traffic based on rules, I didn't tested it yet)
some others...
Of course, you can use an online monitor, like iptraf (maybe it already comes with your distro) or Ethereal
