We have 1800 number dial up server where students connect.  while they are conneceted to our dial up server we can see who is conneced and who is not by going to command prompt and typing "finger @Server IP Address" which displays all the user names that are connected to the server.
Is there way to show all the users that were logged in 15 days ago. or similar type of querying?
