Hello, I'm new here so please be patient. I suspect my network is being monitored by one of my employees. I don't believe it to be spyware though. Their are no popup problems. In addition I have run spysweeper and Norton internet security and everything checks out fine. We have a small network that is peer to peer. How do I determine if someone is monitoring all the network traffic?

Hey color-blind, Welcome to G2G

In order to monitor all the network traffic, one of the pc's on the network would have to have a network card operating in promiscuous mode and have packet monitoring/sniffing or protocol analysis software loaded. Some examples of this type of software are:
Network Probe

There are many others..searching for packet sniffing/packet monitoring/protocol analyzer/protocol sniffer(well, you get the idea) in Google will give you a more exhaustive list...

What makes you think the network is being monitored? What type of security policy do you have in place? A good security policy can help prevent this type of thing.
