Monitoring User's Web Activities

By whollowell ·
I have been requested by my HR department to monitor a list of users who may be abusing internet privliges. I am running in a Windows 2000 server environment with Citrix MetaFrame XP. My question is - What is the best way to go about being able to log/see what websites these individuals are visiting? Please Help!!!

Check The echo software in particular. Very good software, very detailed, you can see all the chat sessions, emails etc as long as they havent been to an encrypted site...
Should work for you...

I forgot to mention that I am also running an ISA server. Is there anyway to log these users through my ISA?

Being at a bank we use surfcontrol for internet usage tracking, monitoring and reporting. Excellent product.

Good Luck!

We use WebSense. Actually had to let someone go for "internet activity" on the first day.

Websense has a free 30 day download.

You can download and install the program and monitor your users and computers for up to 30 days.

You can integrate it with your Active Directory domain to resolve usernames, or just stick the server between your network and your firewall with a hub or unmanaged switch.

Then you can see who has been going where...

Websense has great tech support, or you can request assistance from one of their Partners to assist you in getting it setup.

Hope this helps...and no, I'm not trying to sell you anything...I use it at my office, and I've installed it for companies who want to do just what you're asking about.

I'd suggest WebSense it's great. You can setup auto run for reports on a daily/monthly basis. Also you can limit users to specific sites. We have varied levels of access and it works great here. And they do offer a limited trial. Plus their Support is very good. I hardly ever wait.
