To find internet traffic coming from a specific source, you can use network monitoring tools that allow you to capture and analyze network traffic. Here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Identify the IP address or domain name of the source you want to monitor.
  2. Choose a network monitoring tool such as Wireshark, tcpdump, or Microsoft Network Monitor.
  3. Start capturing network traffic on the device or network segment where you want to monitor the traffic.
  4. Use the filter option in the monitoring tool to filter traffic based on the IP address or domain name of the source you want to monitor.
  5. Analyze the captured traffic to determine the volume and type of traffic coming from the specific source.


Note that network monitoring can be complex and requires a good understanding of networking concepts. It is recommended that you have some experience with network monitoring tools and techniques before attempting to monitor internet traffic.

Additionally, it is important to mention that your ability to capture and analyze internet traffic may be limited depending on your network setup and permissions. If you are on a personal home network, you should have access to capture and analyze traffic within your own network. However, if you are on a public network or a network managed by an organization, you may need appropriate permissions and access rights to monitor and capture traffic.


Keep in mind that monitoring internet traffic from specific sources may raise various legal and ethical concerns. It is important to ensure that you have the necessary authorization and comply with applicable laws and regulations before attempting to monitor internet traffic.

It is also worth noting that some sources of internet traffic may use encryption protocols such as HTTPS, which can make it more difficult to analyze the content of the traffic. In these cases, you may be able to see the source and destination IP addresses and ports, but the actual contents of the traffic will be encrypted.
