Hello Experts,

We have a small network for our college.

ADSL------> Cisco Router-----Cisco Switch----Wireless Access Points.

I want to monitor internet activity of all staff....basically a report on users using the sites and bandwith.



I have this problem too.

Hello Samir,

You can use cisco netflow option (if available in your router IOS). Check the below link.

Or if budget permits, you can go with a proxy server and deploy in transperant mode.

I configured ISA Server in transparent mode and used as a SecureNAT Client. Confgured Clients Gateway pointing to ISA Server.

Thanks for your support.
