Hi, i'm a employee who has been thrusted into the rold of administrator for a small company and often we have employees connect remotely to their office computers from home.  I'm wondering if they are the only ones doing that.  Is there a tool available (preferably free) that allows me to log where people are connecting from on multiple computers.

We are running a Windows 2000 network and I would like to not put this on my server.  I would like to run it on my workstation (with admin access).

Thanks,
KABOOM

Yes, pcAnywhere is what they are using BUT I don't want it to be solely limited to just pcAnywhere.  I'd like to see if any other port is being exploited to enter our small network.

Not really. I only say this because even though you may have a router and watch for someone using a port on the firewall/router, someone could have plugged a modem into a computer and dial in directly.

I suggest the following:

Locking down security on your firewall. Ensure you know what ports are open and why.

Do a PC audit and know what modems are where and why.

Do a Software audit and ensure that no remote software is installed on any of the computers tha you are aware of.

Pay special attention to the servers and what is installed on them including Terminal Services.

This should defintely nail down most of your problems.
