     Hello Doug-
     Well!  A vague question (which was intentional BTW) gets a vague 
     answer (intentional as well I'm sure!).  We're thinking about 1) 
     whether or not to monitor internet traffic for liability and security 
     purposes, and 2) how to do it.  I suppose we could monitor volume, 
     times and duration of usage, among other things.  I've got a FreeBSD 
     box working here, and know if anything is capable of these things, it 
     is.  I guess I'm a little new to the admin side of the internet, so 
     I'm looking for any suggestions at all about what it takes to do these 
     things, and if FreeBSD is a good choice.
  My views are my own, and yours if you want them, 
  but not those of Monsanto Company.

Monitor in what way?
