Hello all please bear with me because this is all new to me. I am currently deployed to Iraq and we have satellite broadband over here with 27 users on our dish. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any programs out there to watch what each IP address is using for bandwidth. This is to make sure that one guy isn't using up all the bandwidth. I was also looking into a program that would allow me to monitor and throttle down someones bandwidth if they get too carried away. Thanks in advance.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi dquack, how much were you looking to spend? That sort of kit can set you back quite a lot of money if you are looking for stand-alone hardware!

You could use a program called ccproxy on the server if you have them networked through one. Details can be found here http://www.youngzsoft.net/ccproxy/

Another program is made by SoftPerfect http://www.softperfe...dth-control.htm Again, this has to be installed on a server that is acting as the gateway between the network and the internet line.
