What is the NETMON agent?

A. In some situations you may want to monitor traffic for a certain machine but are unable to actually use that machine to perform the network monitor (maybe because of physical location).

The Network Monitor agent is installed on the machine whose traffic you wish to monitor and then you can "connect" to it from a machine running the Network Monitor application and capture its traffic.

The Network Monitor agent runs as a service and needs to be started on the machine whose traffic you wish to capture.
