New add-on as of Core Update 000 (for future add-on).

With IPTraffic you can determine the traffic of a computer based on its IP address. Only the traffic between IPFire and the client will be monitored. The display is shown as a tabular overview and additionally a statistical graphic can be called up for each client over the period of the last hour, day, week, month and year.

IPTraffic will collect traffic to the GREEN, BLUE and ORANGE networks (no RED).

Find the needed IP Address or Hostname and click on the pencil in the “Action” column. The client will be added to the upper table. After a few minutes you should see see numbers at the client.


Re-open the arp-table again by clicking on Show table. The pencil at the added client has turned grey meaning the client was already added.
