    Does anyone know of an updated application, preferably free, that analyzes and reports all internet traffic?

    I've had no luck finding anything good, was hoping maybe someone here may know of one that does the job quite well.

    Wireshark is an option.

    This looks like an interesting tool, does it alert you of suspicious activities?

    Wireshark is a good tool, but isn't it more for packet sniffing than network analyze software?

    You can take a look here, but no info on how up-to-date they are.

    It monitors all traffic in and out of a network card. It allows you to get granular and look at packets.

    There is also LayerView.

    The only problem with wireshark is that it doesnt run in realtime but gives you a picture of packets at the time of the snapshot.If anything non-legit is calling home on your computer then its hit and miss if wireshark would capture this.

    Anyhow its the job of the firewall to stop non legit outbound connections.Although for the curious wireshark is a great tool.

    Wireshark has the ability to capture traffic in real time.

    Last time I used it was when I managed a BF2 server. We used it to capture packets and catch people using hack tools. The server would get laggy when someone was trying to cheat and the packet size would double compared to a normal size packet from someone who wasnt cheating. Made it very easy to ban hackers.
