Hi

I have a network with around 120 components (workstation, servers, routers - use to create VPN between office location) I want to create trafiic report for all components (filter by ip, destination ip, used protocol, used software). I want to be able to see who generate traffic on my network and also what type of software use: torrent, dc++, streaming .... I can't use proxy server because I have mutiple location and each location have own gateway for internet.

Can someone tell me one or more solution (if is possible free) to rich this objective, if is need to instal a client on workstation is okay but is important to use one server to report network traffic.

I try to use demo version from SolarWinds but I can't set up. We have linksys router between offices.

Thanks for any suggestions
Petre

I have LinkSys routers. I don't have netflow or I don't know how to enabled.

If you can mirror the router's LAN port to a PC running Wireshark, go into the statistics section and then conversations and it will give you a look at who is doing what and what volume of data they are moving.

You can sort by the various columns to get an idea of what is using the most bandwidth etc.
You can copy that information into a spreadsheet if you want.

I know it doesn't make a nice graphical report but it is a quick and cheap look at your top talkers etc.

We don't find any good solution. In the and we buy a program which have the own agent which we instal on each station.
