NetResident is a network traffic monitor that captures, stores and analyzes all packet traffic from selected protocols. It reconstructs each event and displays a preview of the web page, email message or other communication that took place, including transmitted (unencrypted) passwords. NetResident supports standard HTTP, FTP and Mail protocols, as well as special protocols via plug-ins (ICQ, MSN, News). The program is easy to use and organizes the logged data by date, machine and protocol, and also offers several basic filters to exclude stations, sites or file types from logging. NetResident runs as a local service.
