This is one of my Untangle boxes in router mode (don't have any in bridge mode at the moment). You can view live traffic by adding a rule to the firewall module and monitoring a specific port by enabling "logging", there is a session mode to view current sessions, and you can look at archived reports or generate reports on the fly to view data.

You also have the option to export to excel .csv if you want to create a custom pivot table to dig through data (if you need control at that granular level).

It might be what you are looking for. Best part is that it is free.

I can't confirm but I don't see why not.

when you set untangle to bridge mode, do you have to do any other configuration or is one nic in and the other nic out?

That is pretty much the gist. Check out these resources:

ok, i will check that out, thanks.

i installed untagle a few years ago so i am a little familiar with the setup, but never stuck with it or looked at the bridge mode option.

Thank you for that, I actually had that same solution in my list and glad to see someone else bring it up.
