    Anyone have any suggestions on program that they have personally used?

    to monitor website usuage, you could setup a global proxy.. however that's alot of work for what may be a small group of users.

    you could install vnc or something like that, make sure they don't need to request permission to connect, and just look now and then.
    that's a big privacy issue though in my mind..
    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point

        If it's only web sites that you want to monitor, check the firewall to see if it can watch an individual user. You could give them a static IP or DHCP reservation and then watch that internal IP's activities from within the firewall. Most firewalls shold be able to do that most rudimentary of auditing.

        You could port-mirror the switch port that their workstation is connected to and pump all the mirrored data into a monitoring program or even just set up some kind of capture filter in Microsoft Network Monitor. Kinda low-tech and lots of manual watching, but it would get the job done.
