Hi all, looking for some advice on some Internet Monitoring Software. It is for a SBS2003 server with 6 workstations, I do not have ISA. Basically just want to do a check as we have seemed to increased our total usage per month.

I do Squid(Free)! I'd recommend running Squid with Dansguardian ....squid is the best but keep in mind it requires times and skills to install, manage and configure it with other components. I used it in many complex environments with success but again you need  the skill in Linux and squid (open source packages)...
