I live in a VERY small town and we are setting up a community house. (neighbourhood house)
I have donated a PC running PCLinuxOS XFCE and I am its administrator.
I hope to get a few local people interested in Linux as a lower cost option.
The co-ordinator of the community house has a Windows laptop provided by the employer, and we may soon get permission to share that internet connection with the Linux PC, to provide public internet access. (it is a USB wireless stick connection, we have no ADSL in the area.) We still are getting details of the monthly download limit, so we can see how tight we have to be with download file sizes.
We need some sort of software on the Linux PC to monitor its usage - both time and download MB. It doesn't need to be server/client, just a window the co-ordinator can open to show the time and MB download of the current session. (Trying to keep it simple.)
I'd appreciate any suggestions of: suitable monitoring software; suggestions for how to make it work; advice about any problems I need to anticipate.
This will be a VERY small scale - 1 or 2 PCs max so I don't need or want a full on cybercafe management system.
