Kerio Control monitors network traffic, users and system health. This article describes the process to monitor active network connections through Kerio Control.
Kerio Control monitors:
- Client connections to the Internet through Kerio Control.
- Connections from the Kerio Control Appliance.
- Connections from other hosts to services provided by Kerio Control.
- Connections performed by clients within the Internet that are mapped to services running in LAN.
- Local connections which go through Kerio Control.
Find monitoring of active connections:
- Open Kerio Control administration console.
- Go to Status > Active Connections.
Each line of the Active Connections window represents one network connection. (Note that these are not user connections. Each client application can use multiple connections at any given moment.)
The section can display:
- The length of the connection. Source and destination countries are classified by a GeoIP filter. Check the filter for displaying countries.
- DNS Names.
- The total size of data received (Rx) or transmitted (Tx) during the connection.
- Different types of connections display in different colors. You can also copy IP addresses and hostnames in the bottom window.
- Right-click any connection.
- Click Kill Connection.
