Thanks for the help guys.......i recon its the traffic between my server and my desktop pc, as i use VNC viewer. It must be the cause as when i reduce the refresh time on the network monitor from 1 second to 10 seconds, the traffic halves.....Then when i reduce it even more to 20 second intervals, the traffic is even less ! So VNC viewer must use so much bandwidth to allow me to see my server desktop on my Xp desktop. I am very surprised that it uses so much !! Many thanks for the help on this one......I am sure there will be a lot more items i may need help on

If its only being used as a server, try getting used to the cmd line env and running ssh into the box when you need to look at it.
You can use Putty from the MS XP box.
Txfr bandwidth is tiny.

You may find these useful:

I'd also recommend getting a small notebook and making notes of useful cmds like iftop until you learn how to use the man pages.
Actually, there's a nice web version here:

Wow your telling me local network activity is clogging on your local bandwidth. I aggree with whats said. Either upgrade your switch/router to a 100MB+/per sec or Learn how to use SSH. You can use putty if you are on a windows machine to connect to SSH. If you use a linux machine just open up a termain and type something like

ssh username@x.x.x.x
ssh root@
SSH I find to be the best way to manage a server.

Good luck hope you find a good solution.
