There are several methods. Here is one that does not depend on
m0n0wall for this function. Wire things like so:
[m0n0wall] -- [hub] -- [switch] -- [your PCs]
Connect another PC to the hub and use a program like BWMeter
(desksoft.com). The hub is necessary to duplicate all packets flowing
between the network and m0n0wall. An alternative to a hub would be to
use a smart switch that can be configured to duplicate all packets, but
if you have a hub lying around that's a cheap solution.
