Free downloads for auditing network

Can you direct me towards Windows 2000 free downloads for auditing a network and IP/network packets?

I do not know of any freeware tools for Windows 2000 that allow you to audit or collect stats on IP network packets. I did find a listing for Socket Workbench 3.1, which might do what you are looking for. The download is available at This is an evaluation copy, and the real product is not free. I have not used the product and make no claim as to how good it is or is not.

If you are looking to audit a network, I would suggest you use a Linux box to do that. There are many good tools available for Linux. A good place to start your search for any Linux tool is the GNU Web site.
