What packets can I capture to see if my employer is using some tool to monitor my workstation at work while I am working, and can see my screen when I am not aware of it?

There are many tools out there which are targeted to that need, and I assume proprietary in nature. Therefore it may no be easy to find. What could be an indication is a constants trickle or stream of packets to a certain destination, with little or no return traffic.

Hi RoadWarrior, could be an idea starting to take a capture on your PC setting a capture filter with a specific lan (employee) ?

Once done you should look for protocols used from this lan with your IP as destination.

Could it be useful ?
