Ok folks, you've yet to let me down!  I'm hopeing you can give me some guidance.

I've got a client with a Cisco PIX 501 VPN Router.  They want to log (perfer log & email) to keep track of who/what/when people log into the VPN.  Both for security & for accounting purposes (i.e. vendors log in to do maintaince, we'd like to know how long they were in).

The end-user is not an IT person, and will need the information to be readable by a normal human being...  (unlike most SYSLOG app logs).  Anyone have any suggestions?!?!

The 501 has no inherent capability to do this, but --
You could make it a syslog event and send syslogs to something like Sawmill reader

If the client has a Windows 2000/2003 server, then they have a Radius server.
Setup the PIX to use Radius authentication for the VPN clients, and use the radius logs and accounting functions within Microsoft IAS.

I was trying to stay away from syslog, but I think thaty may be the way I have to go.

The only server in the environment is a WIndows 2000 Small Business server, it's already doing too much for the size of the machine, I'd rather not add any futher resources to it if I don't have too.  But it looks as if I may have too...
