Best done on the actually users computer or on a switch or router the are connecting through

If you post what hardware they are connecting through we may be able to advise you better.

If you are using ISA or a Unix gateway, software can be installed on this to give graphic charts of usage by ip address

I use bandwidthd on Unix

If your switch has a http console, you can at least monitor traffic on the port the computer is contected to.

Best place to catch it is the gateway.

jessmcaCommented:
If the ISA Server is the gateway, have a look at this

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/isa/2004/plan/monitoringfeatures.mspx

Thisi will make the log data more readable

http://www.internetaccessmonitor.com/eng/products/iam/internet-access-monitor-for-isa-server/

This is where you want to be catching data though

Etherial is now known as Wireshark, just for an FYI in case you're trying to find it.

Ok, here is a link for Monitoring the Internet Connections going thru ISA server.

These utilities will install as add-on to ISA and integrate with it.

Then you can monitor, just what the user is browsing, how much data they are downloading etc.

A great piece of software to use is called Kerio Winroute firewall, if you have some budget get it, it allows you to monitor a users internet useage, but also set a quota, once the quota has been reached for that day / month you can either cap then at a specified bandwith or block their access completelty.

Since you already have ISA, you can do what ever you want using it.

If you want to do quota management and Bandwidth Management, then these softwares can be installed:
http://www.isaserver.org/software/ISA/Bandwidth-Control/


For Real Time Monitornig and Bandwidth Reporting per user. Use GFI Webmonitor.
It can work as freeware after 30days with reporting feature only.

if you want to see WHEN data is coming in /out of your PC (not worried by who) you can use the tray icon that comes with Zone Alarm Firewall
you can also look at the lights on your switch/hub - they flash when data going in / out of them and you can trace the number next to the light to the computer connected to it (easy free solution)

or you can use Remote Desktop Software to look at their screen and you can see exactly what they're doing - ie get TightCVNC
