  • How to monitor Msn Messenger Live

    Hi guys are there any easy ways of monitoring usage of msn live e.g. what pc's are using it. Also are what are the best ways of blocking it from individual pc's e.g. by ip address.

    Blocking is easy if you have a decent firewall. Here is a link for ISA:

    Monitoring im not too sure about. There are packages that will monitor what applications are running on clients but i bet you could script something that checked open ports or something like what process is running on clients.

      If I remember correctly, MSN Messenger uses TCP port 1863, you can monitor usage of that port by using any decent sniffer, or dedicated programs like MSN Chat Monitor & Sniffer v3.5.2.
