  • Track user internet usages

    I have a windows 2008 server that is a DC and also our DNS server.
    All user are connected via this DNS server to the internet.
    My question is :
    I would like to create a report on all user and their internet usages on the system, I would like to know which website they visit and how many time so by the end of the week I can see if they are using the internet for work or for personal usages.

    I know there is some software there that will do it but you need to install them on each computer and also sometime the AV will block them from working, so I'm looking for something EZ enough to deploy over the network without spending alot of time on it.

    Please advice I will appreciate any idea you might have.
    Thank you

    Use a proxy server like ISA server (Windows 2003 only) or wait for TMG.
    But can't your firewall or your current proxy server provide such logs?

      Thanks for your reply,
      I do not have a proxy server and my firewall is a Cisco pix
      I really do not know how good the pix log will look like when it come to report.
      and by the way what is TMG ?

      Thank you

        TMG will be the next generation of ISA.
        More advanced, stronger, etc.
        Check this out.. http://www.microsoft.com/forefront/e.../tmg-beta.aspx
        It's planned for Q4 this year and it will run on Windows 2008.

        I'm not really a cisco guy, but I'd believe you cannot use Windows Integrated authentiation against the Pix.
