How to Monitor Home Network Access/Family etc?

Postby Chrisnz on Sat Mar 02, 2013 12:42 am

I want to know who's connected to our home wireless system in a graphical way. Simple?? Other Linux versions seem to have a graphical Icon on the toolbar to do this. Click and show whos connected - however I cant find this on LMDE? And I cant seem to find something I recognize as suitable via synaptic's?
Can you help?

Thanks from a "Dad" :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi Chrisnz. Can you please tell us the names of Linux distros you have used, that have this feature ?

If you want to monitor the connections of your PC/laptop there is a tool that might help you (it will tell you the IP connections, ports...): Hardinfo (it is available in the repos of most of distros, and it will give you full information of your system: When you open the app, go to network and you will find what you are looking for).

Thanks Rop75 - however as you say "full info of system..." - bit too much info! Isn't there anything simpler?? Anyone tried EtherApe?
