Best place

I'm using network probe since yesterday (oct, 4, 2004).
Easy installation. Very good interface. Congratulations.

My network:
3 lan connected by 1 wan (FRAME RELAY).
1 internet (PPP)


LAN(MAIN) IS WHERE I AM. I'd like to monitor my entire network attaching 1 computer with network probe to a hub. My question is: What's the best place at the diagram that I can plug my hub and my computer to monitor my entire network? Plug between router(main) and lan(main)? Plug between Firewall and router(ppp)?
Any other suggestion? Remember that users can access another lan and internet, and I want to measure that.
Thank you.

You should get the exact same results no matter which of these two options you choose.
If you want to monitor exact which host on a LAN is accessing the internet, you would need to have two copies of Network Probe running, on LAN A and LAN B.
