I want to achieve local IP tracking. I am running an office with a network of 10 PCs. I am having a proxy server to provide internet to my employees. Will there be any possibility to do local IP tracking? Thanks.
How to achieve local ip tracking ?
Yes, local IP tracking is possible. All you have to do is get a tool called Wireshark. It’s a free and open source packet analyzer. You can get the tool from http://www.wireshark.org/download.html . This is a very easy tool to use. You just have to deploy the tool on the proxy server. Then you have to Capture the network card which provides service to all the users. Select the Interface from the Capture menu. From there, you will be directed to how many cards you have on your system. Select the appropriate card through which all the requests go through.
You can also filter the kind of packet you want. For an in depth detail, you can check out a tutorial on http://www.howtogeek.com/107945/how-to-identify-network-abuse-with-wireshark/
