    I've searched theforum here, can someone post a concise description of how to configure tomato and wallwatcher to work together for logging and bandwith monitoring?

    THanks in advance

    Monitoring is great in tomato but it would be awesome when you can also monitor the transfer of any MAC Adress or better of specified mac adresses to control per Computer bandwith watching.

    Use "Log to remote System"

    My Tomato dumps it's logging internally and to a remote system on port 514 (Administration --> Logging --> Syslog).
    FYI that (FreeBSD-)system is running syslog-ng. If I (also) enable the in- and / or outbound connections I would end up with a bunch of logging to feed to WallWatcher (but I don't).
    Now, these logfiles could be shared to a PC running Win32 and WallWatcher by offering them through Samba on the Unix-side. You get my point, right?

    Another way is to run a Win32-syslog application on port 514. I know there is a freeware product, [strike]but at the time of writing I can't remember it's name...[/strike] called Kiwi Syslog Daemon. Give that one a try and feeds it's logs to WallWatcher!

    OT - Alongside the built-in bandwidth-graphs, I use Cacti on the FreeBSD-side and an SNMP-daemon on the Tomato-enabled WRT54 for the longer overview.
