I have banned the use of rlogin and telnet and the other insecure tools
and need to be able to catch employees using them.
As we have had a few crakers on our network previously.

My training instructor showed me a tool that ran in terminal with a blue
background that actually listed all active connections on the network
(intranet in my case) he selected one and showed us how the text was

Any ideas.
