    Hi guys,

    Does someone know of a program or application that allows you to monitor what traffic is going in/out the lan connection to adsl modem. I would like to be able to see what files are being transmitted or received, where they are going or where they are being read from on the HD. I know there are programs that allow you to see how many bytes are being moved but I would like to know the names and locations of the files.

    Traffic on the wire and the (possibly) related files on the hard drive have absolutely nothing to do with each other. If that is what you wanted to do, you would have to monitor which processes on a target machine are opening sockets, and of those that are, what files they are opening. I don't know of anything offhand that does that.

    The traffic is easy enough to monitor with Wireshark or tcpdump for those who like the nitty gritty.
