I have a client who is looking to get reporting on when someone dials into his system using PCAnywhere on a monthly basis.

I know PCAnywhere will log to the eventlog, but that isn't a straightforward enough way for our client to obtain this information.  

Can anyone suggest a solution where this conscise report can be easily provied on a monthly basis?   The version we're using is 10.5, but upgrading wouldn't be out of the question, but the product can't change.  We have to stick with PCAnywhere.

Thanks

You can use a free tool like PSLogList to dump the event log contents for the last month and then use a batch file or a script to email the results to the client.  You may also import the results into an excel spreadsheet.

See PSLogList here:

There are also several 3rd party event log analysis tools (not free) where you can analyze event logs (have a look on Google).

I do not believe there are any specific tools (to my knowledge) for PC Anywhere log analyses.

Hope this helps.
