Network Traffic

By milesrrs ·
Hi
im running w2k server on a small home network, and using a dial up connection for the net....recently, i have noticed that everytime i dial up to the net there seems to be constantly data being sent out on the modem. I have currently been connected to the net for 10 minuts and have sent nearly 5Mb out, even though i havent sent virtually anything. i have run Norton Anti virus and it has not picked anything up, but there is something sending data....any ideas on how to track it down

thanks

Adrian

As mentioned in other posts you more that likely have a worm or trojan on your system. Instll zonealarm or another firewall product. Zonealarm will ask you if you will allow an application to access the internet. Even Internet Explorer the first time you use it. So when either the worm or trojan goes to access the internet you will get a popup asking if you want to allow. At least this way you will know what apps are accessing the I-net. I was hit with sub7 at one time a easy to use hack program that will install a trojan on target machine allowing the hacker access to the machine. Hope this helps ya some. Have a good day.
