Live Monitor with IP and Port Number...



On older version (PRTG 6 for instance) I was able to monitor LIVE data to the server which included the IP Address and the PORT number they were accessing. This was very handy when tracking someone attempting something malicious.

Later versions stopped providing this, OR I am not sure where to find it. I can find LIVE MONITOR through the sensor, but that is only showing the amount and volume of the traffic. Not a live feed of IP address and their PORT number access.

Am I missing something? Or is this feature part of a paid version? Or is this feature completely gone?

Thanks to a response from Paessler this has been solved.

I had a packet sniffer in place, but didn't click on the "Top Connections" or "Top Talkers" icons to see the specifics I was after. I was just glancing at the reports.
