NetControl receives its data from up to 350 probes distributed all over the network. The probes may be from different types. With its two "internal" probes NetControl can evaluate the data on the network segment the PC running NetControl is connected to. Additional probes can be installed on the other (remote) segments.
If your network is "fully" switched, this means nearly every station has its own port on a switch, the RzK Flow probe can collect the NetFlow packets provided by today’s manageable switches and routers.
The NetControl probes can supervise IP or MAC-addresses. In case of MAC, the addresses given by the burned in network card of a station is monitored, in case of IP, the IP addresses of the stations are taken. In case of IP this allows a view beyond a router and so it is easy to find out which external address has accessed your net resp. which internal station has called which external server. Also the used IP services can be recorded: nntp, http, ftp ...
