Network Connection Monitoring in GUI

Is there such a package I can install to see the actual PCs connected in my Linux Box. For example, if you have squid running on the server you will see which units are connected. And if possible a graphical connection showing the PCs connected to your server. Thanks alot.

I don't know about a GUI, but iptstate from can show you the connections through your iptables firewall in a format similar to top's output. There's also netstat which has a -c option to display its output continuously.

If you want to watch traffic instead of connections, there's tethereal and tcpdump, both of which can output to files for viewing.

None of them have a GUI (except ethereal is the GUI form of tethereal) - sorry about that
