View Full Version : monitoring network activity
January 17th, 2009, 11:49 AM
I have a airport extreme, 2 macs and one pc on my network.
I would like to monitor the activity on this network.
By monitoring, I mean being able to see websites visited, P2P, etc...
So I'm looking for a soft that I could install on my iMac (10.5.6) to do that.
Before with my Zyxel, I was able to log the activity and to block some websites. With Airport Extreme, I don't think that is doable, at least I don't know how to do it.
If you have some idea...

In order to do that, you'd need some sort of firewall/proxy/router that handles all incoming and outgoing traffic. Do you mean that you want all traffic to go through that iMac?

No no, just to be able to log it.
That would happen, of course, only when the iMac is running.
Or if there is a way to do it with the AE.
By the way the pc connects to the AE by wifi

I use OpenDNS (http://www.opendns.com/). Just follow the instructions on the site, and it'll lead you through whatever you need to do.
There is a free version, and it allows you to block sites and monitor traffic on your router.
