    Asking for Net-Monitor tool

    recently, i am having charge for monitor all the activities arround the network. there are 9 PC in the network and all are in workgroup. some operators are always surfing the net for pornography. so i need to restrict them to do so.

    so i'm looking for some net admin tools to directly access their destop with all the permission like rad/write/execute. i used radmin and advnetmon. but i'm not satisfied bcuz the radmin server is always displays inthe client PC.

    can any1 give me tool to have access and view the client desktop remotely.

    I don't know of any Freeware monitoring soft ware but you could try one of these if you have the budget for it.

    forgot to mention OS, but for monitoring Internet activity the way to go is using a proxy. You could have it sitting in the middle invisible to the rest of the users.
    Some months ago, we had a thread about linux routers and 2 of the solutions had content filtering (that is what you need)
    I use here St Bernard, which does fine job at filtering, but in MHO is very poor in the reports. I am guessing here your operators use Linux (as well as you), so settng a proxy should be quite easy for you. I work in a state company, so I would never dream of looking at the users desktop (could cause serious legal ramifications), but I am totally entitled to watch the network.
    By sure that whichever course you take, you inform users that they are being monitored, unless you don't care losing your job. Also make sure you have a company policy that allow you to do so. In my opinion I wouldn't use any of the 2 tools since they are too intrusive.
    Another solution is perception. Just inform that the activities are being monitored, do a little of monitoring wihtouth going in dept, and they will behave a lot better thinking they are being watched. We did something similar, after reading a joke about it. We worked in a PC which was in a public space (often vandalized) and pull cables around. When people said what we were doing we just answered "We can't tell you", so they asked "Are you installing a camera?" to which we answered "I can't tell you yes, but I would start being more carefull from now on"
    We haven't had a single incident since (this was a year ago )

    I believe that the features you are looking for are all built into MS SMS (Microsoft Systems Management Server). You can find out more about it at http://www.microsoft.com/smserver/default.mspx
