What network monitoring tool would you recommend that works as a service (and network filter) thus doesn't require any application in autorun and can count what remote host/port/protocol the current machine connected to and how much traffic was consumed/sent?

PS: it's for home usage, so I'm looking some simple tool of non-enterprise level (and price) ;-)

tried networkx? softperfect.com/products/networx/....i am not sure if it offers host/port level stats –  tumchaaditya Sep 7 '12 at 8:46
@tumchaaditya: seems like it doesn't provide that info –  zerkms Sep 7 '12 at 8:48
check this out:paessler.com/port_monitoring..they have a freeware version that works for 10 sensors(i don't know what that means). –  tumchaaditya Sep 7 '12 at 8:55
@tumchaaditya: yep, seen that and was expected it is tooo monstruous, but seems like there is no alternatives. So let give it a try, thanks :-) I'll report here about the results –  zerkms Sep 7 '12 at 9:04
@tumchaaditya: well it's way tooooooooooo complicated and is definitely not for home users :-( –  zerkms Sep 7 '12 at 9:14
