    I am looking for something I can use to monitor the activity that goes through to my web server hosted locally on my machine. I would like to be able to see what IPs are connected/have connected, while files they download, and bandwidth usage. Any software suggestions, or if windows has one built in HOW-TO would be nice. Thanks

    There are quite a few ways to do this..

    Here are quite a few 3rd party tools that can do what you need and range in price from from free to many tens of thousands of dollars..

    Here are few sites that list various cheaper tools..

    There are also the more expensive 3rd party tools like web trends that my be overkill for a small site like yours.

    If you have a little SQL/Programming skill, you can roll your own analysis tool using Microsoft's Log Parser utility (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter/logs/logparser/default.mspx)
