    Default Need Help with Monitoring Minecraft network usage

    So, my kid is kind of getting addicted to Minecraft. He would play hours and hours straight and I had to unplug the network couple of times to make him stop. When not on Minecraft, he says he's practicing fast clicking, etc again related to Minecraft. Is there a way, I can monitor the network traffic while he uses Minecraft? I really cannot allow a screen time of more than 2 hours a day!

    I would suggest you take a look at the documentation for Policy Manager and the associated webinars and videos that can be found under the Resources tab.

    Web Monitor doesn't block a thing... it's a monitor.

    Those docs are really really long... I cant spare that much. Can you link to something specific? I'll highly appreciate your help.

    Well the rub there is detecting the Minecraft traffic. It by default is TCP 25565, but it technically can be anything. But you can look for server port 25565 in your firewall logs to see the default stuff.
