Bandwidth usage per userIP logger on LAN?
For our little network (9 PCs), I need to know who is exhausting our network lately. We got one PC, connected to a cablemodem, which works as an softrouter (WinRoute DHCP server).
Now I need to log the bandwith usage logged per PC (via IP), because some on the network use too much bandwidth IMO.
BTW I informed all users that I will install such a program, when I find one.

should just be able to do it with windows. i think... maybe i'm wrong, but i want to say that one of the net tracker clients that comes with windows can provide this information.

Sorry forgot OS: win98SE (stripped with 98lite III)
I shall try to find more info on net tracker, thanks.

I don't know of any software, but how about shoulder surfing, or just looking at active connections? Next time the network is real slow, how about doing a netstat and see who has the most connections going? Or you may have an idea who is to blame just by seeing what they're connected to. (MP3.com etc.) And if the network is slow, and only one other computer is accessing the net, then you have your culprit.
Another low tech solution: Can you look at the little blinky lights on your switch/hub? If someone is flashing all the time, you might want to look a little closer at what that user is doing.
Sorry I don't have a wiz-bang nifty program to suggest, but I'd start with the above ideas first.

netatat won't tell you traffic load though. it's just a matter of understanding what server the connection is open to.
i'm almost suprised that your softrouter woudln't have a fucntion like this built in.

Can't find the feature in winroute. netstat wasn't any help unfortunately.
Found something which comes close:
Logging is a future option unfortunately. But it does exactely what I want, so I can confront the user with highbandwidth, must be some P2P programm or so.

probably is. if you see netstat to a connection you can't realize right away, that's what it ususally is.
if you see port 6346, that's a gnutella program. not sure what kazaa uses...

Kazaa: port 1214
I suspect ShareScan BTW
Well just have to wait until my internetsurfing drops down to under dialup speed.

The program crashes unfortunately.
Anybody knows a proggie that does the same?
