    Web Logging

    Hi,

    We have a CC3 network and have RM Auditor. There is an add on to that what allows you to log all users Internet activity eg what sites they have been on. This costs a fortune for the add on. I was wondering if you know of any other way which does a similar thing for a lower price, preferable free as we hardly have any money at all lol.

    Thanks, Glenn

    Re: Web Logging

    The best way of doing this I think would be to set up a proxy server, and push all your internet traffic through it. There's lots of free linux based solutions that will do this, like IPcop which are relatively easy to install and configure to log traffic. You can also get handy useage statistics out of it and a whole lot more, including content filtering etc.

    I'm sure someone can name a few more better ones than IPcop, but it's the only one I can remember.

    Mike.

    I think our internet allready goes through a proxy, in internet options you have to have the proxy ticked and an ip address under the connections menu.

    I dont know exactly what it is though.

    Re: Web Logging

    Someone posted a script to do this on here some time ago - it worked great - and we were using it up til we installed Smoothwall a little while ago.

    Re: Web Logging

    Any idea where it is, or what it was called?

    @gh256: It's simple enough to use an upstream proxy with any of the free and paid-for solutions. Take a look at SmoothWall, IPCop, Endian Firewall and MS ISA Server as some common examples.

    Re: Web Logging

    I use a vbs script someone posted it, runs at logoff via GPO for whoever we apply the GPO to.

    It parses Internet Explorer's History and compiles a HTML file based on the username of the person. We currently run it on our Junior High students, since they're the ones we trust the least

    You can see in the script where the output files are created, modify it as needed and make sure there permissions for everyone to at least be able to write/modify in that dir.

    Be sure to change \\SERVERNAME\SOMEFOLDER\ in the file to your share (I think there 3 instances of that), and WinNT://CHANGETOYOURDOMAIN/ to your domain in AD, to get the username

    Re: Web Logging

    That works really well after a bit of messing around with permissions. At least we have a basic log now!

    Re: Web Logging

    What did you do to get it to work? It says our users dont have the right to run it when they are logging off. Can you RUNAS ?

    Re: Web Logging

    Just created a new folder with the correct permissions. Do you actually get an error message - I didn't. It started off only working for me and after some tinkering it's all good. The only problem is the size of the folder. After one lesson it's 4.5MB... 6 lessons a day... etc

    Think it'll need regular archiving

    Re: Web Logging

    What about tacking a front end on this? How easy would that be?

    Re: Web Logging

    TBH, I am a bit biased, but you'd be better off doing your logging at proxy level, rather than a shenzi script based solution

    Re: Web Logging

    We currently only have the LEA filter - our deputy asked me to look into something that would cover us if we needed to prove that someone had (or had not) been accessing a particular site.

    I've been pushing to implement a proxy but only have a spur of the hardware in this building and don't have my own server - let alone a server I could connect to the optical switch that the LEA maintain...

    Poor me...

    This should work neatly to prevent kids thinking about doing things they shouldn't. In one afternoon it's clear than Top Shop and Dorothy Perkins are more interesting than working!
