Dear EE member,
I have a windows 2000 server, where it connected to 30 client pc via AD. Now, I would like to know which user and the application which occupied the most bandwidth in the local network and also internet, so that I can advice the management to control the usage. Is there any free and good tool that I can use to test on this?

Regards,
Peter

Dear PowerIt,

It is a great tool. But I cannot access the admin page, there 's no user id and password provided. Do
you know where to get it? I also want to know more info on how to configure, use and where to ask question about ntop in future?

Thanks.

Regards,
Peter

The user id = admin
The password should be whatever you have set it to when first starting ntop.
This is described in the userguide.

Pointers to documentation:
http://wiki.ntop.org/mediawiki/index.php/End_User%27s_Guide
http://wiki.ntop.org/mediawiki/index.php/Ntop
http://www.ntop.org/faq.txt

You can also search the archive of the mailinglists.
It's at http://listgateway.unipi.it/pipermail/ntop/
So you can google it with something like "searchterm site:listgateway.unipi.it/pipermail/ntop/"
