!!! Help Network Monitoring Microsoft So

By Ron Navon ·
Dear Madam/Sir,

I am looking for the complete LAN software Monitoring of Microsoft, I knew that during NT 4.0 Installation I can Install LAN Monitoring software but this softwarer is very poor.

I knew that Microsoft has a good software LAN Monitor but I didn't find it in Resurce Kit and MS site.

Please Help me to find it.

Thanks and Best Regards.


Sincerely,

Ron Farzan

I use the NETWORK MONITOR TOOLS and AGENT, its free! You install via Control Panel, Network Icon, Services Tab, Add button.

SMS has an improved version, the principle difference is that you can capture ANY packets not just those two and from yourmachine.
For other statistics, I recommend the Performance Monitor in the Administrative Tools. I would try these before spending loads of dollars on something that is more or less the same.
Finally which ever one you choose, it takes a few days solid use to understand the captures.

To the best of my knowledge, the full function MS Network Monitor is only supplied with the full SMS product (or with a suite that includes it like BackOffice). It can be installed as a standalone product and doesn't require SMS to work properly but is not available separately.

It sounds like you are already aware of the limited-function Network Monitor supplied with NT and that it won't meet your needs.

If that is the case, you either need to obtain SMS or look at third-party packet capture tools. Sadly, both are relatively expensive.
