    Upgrade to SBS2003 (Soon to be R2) and you'll be able to see using ISA2004

          Unfortunately upgrading from SBS 2000 to SBS 2003 does involve some money.

          Google for the best local prices.

          Also be aware that there are 2 versions of SBS 2003. If you want ISA server you need the more expensive (Premium) version

            in previous sites I have used surfcontrol. it lets you know the IP's using these apps, and you can choose to block them,

            nother option is to do a trawl through the web of the logon servers for these apps and amend the hosts file to point to 127.0.0.1, thus when they try to logon they authenticate to themselves (evil but funny when they ring up and ask why certain things are not working!!) this has the added benefit of being deployable by GP

              You gave some misleading info there. There are 2 different SBS 2003 versions but he has 2000 ( which is equivalent to Premium Version) so he just needs the Upgrade ~$600. Otherise you buy a brand new Standard version (~$500) but that is not a move I personally recommend.

                Thank you for the clarification. Yes, I knew that SBS2000 was the "premium" version but didnt think about the upgrade implications. All my SBS 2003 experience has been in fresh installs where the client has a choice about which versin to go with.

                  You could use Ethereal to do this. I've done that before and it works well - and it's free.

                      If you are using any Windows Server version (including SBS2K or SBS2K3) and you have 2 NICS in your setup, since all traffic must then pass through the server, you could install Network Monitor (one of the Windows Components) and see all traffic going out to the internet. It's free also and doesn't need to add anything external to your TCP/IP stack.
