Gathering Cookie /Cache data for invest

By mmcdermot ·
We have a user that was vistiting inappropriate web sites during work hours. Since we are a public school this info had to be reported to the state. The state now wants copies of the cookies and temporary internet files for their investigation. Ihave never had to do this before and I have a problem.

When a temp inet file is copied and saved the information on the web site it is from disappears. Is there any way to keep this info with the cached data?

Is there an easy way to print a listing of all cookies?

Thanks,

Mike

You failed to mention what OS your user's PC is.

Nonetheless, cookies are sort of "web server signatures". When you visited a website, the IIS server can write a cookie or a short text file that contains information which can be gathered by the server from your PC.

The best thing for to do where cookies reside in your PC is to do a search for a folder called Cookies. When the WIN Explorer finds this folder, you can open and see all the cookies. You can 'pipe' a DIR command with sort options so it will list to a printer.

Please note that WIN95, WIN98, WINme, and WIN2K; each have their own folder pathing of where this Cookie folder is residing.

Hope this helps

if you go out to www.ontrack.com and get a file called PDUtil. it is a free explorer type of utility it will allow you to go to the history directory and print out oll of the url's that have been visted in the last month. You could print the cookie list but I don't see where that would be any help
