I need to monitor internet activities by one user/interface on a switch. what would be the best way to do this using the PRTG Network Monitor? I need to generate a report on how the user's web traffic/activities were with visited website address listed.

Thanks, Alex

basically you could do this using either Packet Sniffing or flow sensors in PRTG. Please have a look at the following two articles:

However for a precise list of visited websites per user/IP a Proxy Server might be the better solution for your request.

Best Regards.
