Oh gurus of Networking Know How; must one pay thousands of dollars to find the IP from which bandwidth-hogging emanates? Surely there must be a simple mechanism for doing this. I am unschooled in such matters but my infinite wisdom and 12 years of IT experience dictates a solution must exist for which I will not go broke!
- I own Orion by Solar Winds - only the upgrade will do this! $$$$
- I have a small environemnt (58 users 25 other devices) with a few Cisco 2960's and have tried the CNA. So...I have busy ports. Big whoop!. They are the server and the Internet ports. Must I run ID every port and its connection to a PC before I can identify the IP?
- Spiceworks I have also installed only to find out that the software cannot see beyond the GPO configured and mandated firewall for all users.
Can you sense the frustration?
I am open and humbly except ANY correction, edification or solution.
