IP History

By walse001 ·
I need a program that will allow me to remotely track the internet sites visited by IP address. A student at my school wants his own personal laptop connected, but I need to know what internet sites he visits (For Duty of care). Is there a program I can use to track the websites visited by a specific IP?

Thanks

You weren't so secretive as to your own whereabouts.

Sorry about that, I didn't even realise! My Auto-complete is wrong... Don't know why seamonkey includes those defaults...

sounds like micro managing to me

if you don't trust the kid, don't give them access.

I am sure you have filters for your web traffic if your a school, that block access to "bad" sites, and that should be enough.

what is a valid reason to know EVERYWHERE the kid goes?

As the saying goes, or at least it should.

Whatever happened to the innocence of youth, and education broadening the mind.

Not to get off on a rant, but:

//begin rant//

I wish we could say that today's youth are safe from predators, but they are not.

The 'free and open' communication paths that make the Internet such a powerful tool for the average user also allow these predators into the home, even the bedrooms of our children.

Sadly, many parents don't know an 'IM' from an M&M and their kids are probably chatting with some other "teen" online, whilst the parents feel all snug and secure because they spent $39.95 for NetNanny or some similarly useless filtering tool.

(This "teen", of course, was a teen back in the 1960s).

So I argue that there is no such thing as being too vigilant with respect to the online threats facing today's youth.

Big Brother? You bet.

They didn't have computers.

They did however have their preferred method of approach, even back then.

They were also dealt with back then.

IMHO it's not the fault of 'Net access, or computers - it's the fault of the Law of the Land, which needs to be refined to bring about heavier sentences to deter these weirdos.

Is mostly to blame.

Don't get me wrong, I am not insensitive to the predicament faced by parents these days. I myself am childless but have enjoyed witnessing my nephews and nieces grow up.


I reckon there is ONE salient point here:

1. Information is both more freely available AND much more instant these days. You can now witness live coverage of a news event as it happens in some cases.


I reckon there are TWO salient points here:

1. Information is both more freely available AND much more instant these days. You can now witness live coverage of a news event as it happens in some cases.

2. We currently live in a society that promotes the claiming of compensation at the slightest hint of responsibility for an accident or wrong-doing. "Did you have an accident at work? Call ......."


I reckon there are THREE salient points here:

1. Information is both more freely available AND much more instant these days. You can now witness live coverage of a news event as it happens in some cases.

2. We currently live in a society that promotes the claiming of compensation at the slightest hint of responsibility for an accident or wrong-doing. "Did you have an accident at work? Call ......."

3. We now have instances of prisoners in gaol going on strike, protesting at not having access to the internet! This is nonsensical when a proportion of them are serving sentences for paedophilia-related crimes. It is though, somehow accepted.


I reckon there are FOUR salient points here:

3. We now have instances of prisoners in gaol going on strike, protesting at not having access to the internet! This is nonsensical when a proportion of them are serving sentences for pedophilia-related crimes. It is though, somehow accepted.

4. Due to points 1, 2, and 3 we now don't realise that in the old days things were exactly the same - it's really just that we didn't hear about it quite as much, or indeed quite as quickly, and the 'system' had ways of dealing with it before it became public knowledge, without any perv shouting 'brutality' and claiming compensation.

On reflection I reckon we don't live in an 'Ambulance Chasing' society, I reckon we live in a 'Spanish Inquisition Society': as we strive to develop our technologies, better our lives, create an easier existence for all (well, all of the developed world!), we consequently also witness the seedier side of life at first hand and accept it, or fight against it secretly accepting that it is an insurmountable opponent.

Personally I reckon I'm happy to be the age that I currently am - at least I won't be around by the time this brave new world has gone to **** in a hand-basket.

...Just my opinion, mind.
