Tracking a particular user

By robin ·
Working in a college, I want to be able to track certain user accounts, so that I know instantly when a user logs in along with their location.

Is there any software that will do this?

Thanks,

Robin

Tracking a particular user

You could combine ManageWise with some of their third party applications. ManageWise can "trap" a login event, but cannot filter. There are add-ins however that can, depending on the exact string (i.e. your user name) can do certain things: play asound, send a pager-message, launch a program etc.
Depending on what you exactly need, another solution could be to use good ol' DOS commands in your login scripts, to set DOS settings (SET loginname=%DN or %LOGIN_NAME or so), and at the end use those DOS variables to add a line to a log file somewhere, including date and time and so. That way you track every log in, day and night.

if you did not want to spend anymore money, put something in the login script that writes to a common network drive.
you could write a few lines that could identify what OS is being used, NT or 9x, then run winipcfg or ipconfig and write the outputto that file. that would give you the ip and h/w address. you could time stamp it with the date command.

it should be pretty painless to do it this way. that is if you do not want to buy another package
