Internet Activity Logging

By rglissmann ·
I have a client who would like to know what people are doing on the Internet. In other words log each web site, and if possible which links also. Is there a method to do this using tools provided in Windows 2k Pro, or does this require a third party software? If it does require a third party, is there one that others have used and can recomend?

Are these computers accessing the internet through a proxy, gateway or firewall? If they are, you may find the firewall/gateway/proxy already logs (or has the capacity to) all internet activity.

Our business internet access is provided through a corporate firewall/proxy, and ALL internet activity is logged. As I have told staff when they ask, there is NO privacy, but it is very rare for someone to actually look at these logs unless the staff member has done something to attract attention (like going to an inappropriate web site, or excessive use).

Surf Contol Web Filter

This used to be called SuperScout. It's a great product. You'll be surprised how much your users actually surf the net or use instant messaging, chat, hit the sports, religious, or porn sites, check their horoscope, etc.

The other benefit I found accidentally was it provided inbound information. It was instrumental in helping me to find a flaw in Microsoft's FTP server. It's worth checking out.
