Couldn't find a current thread (younger than 2 years) discussing this, so I thought I would post a new one.

I was surprised when this week I found out that we had exceeded our allocated bandwidth of 9G. We run our internet link through a Forefront TMG server (only gateway to the internet for anyone on the network, no-one has direct access to the router), and it measures every byte sent or received.

The report below (generated by the TMG) is a little difficult to read without html, but you can easily see that over the entire month the total bandwidth usage was 1.5G (final line on the left). This is very far from 9G, and I trust the figures generated by the TMG - this is a fairly serious piece of software.

Does anyone know whether there is someone in Telkom with whom one can argue the figures?

are you telling me in a whole month client 192.168.1.107 just downloaded 900K? This looks more like a daily than a monthly.

i suspect the account details were compromised and someone else in a different location is also using it.
