      You could use firewall rule logging to see which http sites people access, for example:

      Under 'Firewall rules' add a new outbound rule :
      Service = HTTP(TCP:80)
      Action = Allow Always
      Log = Always

      In the Logs tab you'll see the source (your home pc) and destination (the website), there will be lots of requests as each graphic on a webpage will be a separate http request etc. Useful to have a quick look who's doing what. But I won't leave it on longer than necessary.

      Sun, 2010-09-05 13:10:26 - TCP Packet - Source:192.168.0.7,53776 Destination:77.240.11.57,80 - [HTTP rule match]

      Also, your routers log will fill up quickly so might be worth going to the E-mail tab and setting to e-mail you when the log is full.

      Re: monitor

      You should get an option to log when setting up the firewall rule. It is usually a dropdown box at the bottom. The log can then the accessed in the log under the Security Tab.

      I have to say it will work, but you are liable to be overwhelmed with results.

      Re: monitor

      It's worth setting the 'Log' value to be 'MATCH' rather than always.

      • Always - always log traffic considered by this rule, whether it matches or not. (This is useful when debugging your rules.)
      • Never - never log traffic considered by this rule, whether it matches or not.
      • Match - Log traffic only it matches this rule. (The action is determined by this rule.)
      • Not Match - Log traffic which is considered by this rule, but does not match (The action is NOT determined by this rule.)
