In a previous blog How to monitor internet bandwidth usage in lan network?, I introduced features and steps to monitor lan bandwidth with WFilter NG Firewall.
We have another windows software program named “WFilter Enterprise”, which also can monitor clients bandwidth in pass-by deployment. The WFilter pc do not need to be a gateway or network bridge, it can do internet monitoring and filtering through a mirroring port in your switch or router(passby deployment). With pass-by deployment, you don’t need to change network topology or add new hardware to deploy an internet content filter.
In this guide, I will demonstrate the bandwidth monitoring features of WFilter Enterprise 4.1.
