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

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.
