I'm a nooby when it comes to shell / ssh  linux   and i have a linux server at a data center thousands of miles away.

Wanted to know if there is some sorta tool or script that can monitor what files  are being downloaded  and who is the referral  .    Basically trying to monitor traffic  have no idea how.

IP traf is a tool that lets you monitor trafic if works nice but more a realtime tool.  you can use webalizer or awstats to monitor access referals to a sites and so so much more about what was downloaded and if you use any htaccess security it can tell you who and how many times.  Very good tools.

Ethereal is a good packet sniffer, but ssh would make it difficult since it is encrypted.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.
