Re: Montior network activity...Witeshark?
web sense is good software
you can also use microsofts Isa server, or the new version of it called threat management gateway.
then there are free proxy servers like squid or privoxy.
Wireshark will tell you what sites people are going to, but really the log files are going to be too massive to analyze.
what you need is a proxy server,
you install a proxy server then tell it to log all traffic, this will record what traffic pass through the proxy server, like the machine that's requesting a website and what site it's visiting.
once you've got your list of sites that people are visiting then you can use the same proxy software to ban certain sites.
one of the great things about websense is that they actively search out sites so you can block them by category. this means that you can block a category of adult sites or gambling or internet banking for example.
then you don't have to maintain a list in house of all the sites that fit into that category.
there is however a charge for this list that constantly updates.
