      Hi !
      Linux kernel has “ip-firewalling” feature, that controlled via ipfwadm (for 2.0.x kernels) or ipchains (for 2.2.x kernels). Using these utilities you can tune accounting system by ip-address (see ipchains-HOWTO, firewall-HOWTO in your Documentation directory).
      To logging activity by user I suggest to use proxy-servers with authentification on your Linux Router. In addition, in this case you can see “summary” image, even if user works on different mashines and prevent unauthorized using your channel.

      With best regards,
