Your question is too vague.

Do you want to log all the internet activity of the user on a workstation, or all the users that visit a website, or what???

I can give you code to get the IP of the local machine and the current username.

The only fool-proof way to do it is to monitor all traffic sent on ports 80 and 443 (providing those are the ports for http and https respectively).

Here is a sample project:

This really sounds like a router problem rather than a VB problem. You could log traffic by setting up a proxy through which all traffic is sent first, then logged, then forwarded. Alternatively, you could set up a firewall, some of which log traffic.

If you really want a VB soln, then simply modify the above example to only log domains and/or IPs visited.
