Detailed Internet Bandwidth Monitoring Tool

Hi All

I require a Windows equivalent to Linux SquidGuard, something that will run on Windows XP Pro and give me detailed reports for internet usage. Sites browsed, amount downloaded, a cache where all downloaded files go, sorted by Windows NT usernames and IP Adresses. We used to have a server running Squidguard, but our Linux Admin left, and took the server with him. We need help with this urgently.

Thanks!!!

You can run SquidGuard under Cygwin tools on a Windows XP box.

Hi Mcsween and FriarTuk

Thank you for the quick replies. Unfortunately, none of us know too much about Linux so the Cygwin idea, while a good one, won't work as none of us know how to install and configure Squid.

FriarTuk, will any of the above mentioned apps allow me to draw detailed, IP and user specific reports for sites browsed, time spent on each site, with links to the appropriate sites included?

Once again, thanks for the help!!!

Both Mcsween and FriarTuk gave great answers, although I couldn't use any of them, I felt it only fair to reward them for their trouble.
