    Identifying top line user

      Hi there,
      I am trying to identify what node on my network is using most of the Internet bandwidth. The network is behind PIX firewall which I monitor with Solarwinds tools. I tried Syslog but it won't let me sort it out nicely by IP or protocol.
      Any tips will be much appreciated.

          For a quick and cheap solution, download Ethereal (.com) and install on a PC/laptop.  Then plug a hub (not switch) between your PIX and the interface which connects your LAN.  You can then plug the PC/laptop into the hub and sniff every packet hitting your PIX.  Although Ethereal's GUI is not as comprehensive as paid sniffer products, it can certainly tell you the information you require...
