Hmm... I guess you need software installed on netwoked machines... Or just a tcpdump, but it's much harder. If not, web server logs+ftp server logs+samba logs+.... should do.

It sounds more like you want system monitoring tools rather than network monitoring tools. Check out apps like: syslog, Tripwire, AIDE, swatch, etc. Turn up logging and start digging...

If you really want network tools, check out apps like: tcpdump, snort, ethereal, etc.
