I'm looking for an application for monitoring internet usage and controlling bandwidth speed and quotas for each user/MAC in a centralized server for a small LAN network (less than 100 PCs).

  • I'm not clear on what you're asking. You want to monitor bandwidth from each machine, from each user on each machine, or traffic from different users only to/from the server? Or something else? Are you trying to controlling bandwidth centrally or from each node?

  • If those don't do what you need, ask again with your refined requirements and I'm sure I or someone else can offer more suggestions.
