Hi, does any one know of some software that can record who log's onto the network internally and externally via a MS 2000 server VPN.
And record when they have logged off.
doesn't have to be much more complex.
cheers

why bother paying for 3rd party software???

Open event viewer on the server and look in the security log.  if your using a domain, it will show logon and logoff information.

If you look for events with the catagory "logon/logoff" and a username thats not "system" it will show the info you need...

any use?

just looked at the security in event viewer, it doesn't show it. but it does on the 2003 terminal server. which doesn't control the domain.

Start > Run > Type

secpol.msc

Expand "Local Policies", and select audit.   The options on the right allow you select what is recorded in event viewer.   That should be sufficient.

Typing

usrmgr.exe

I believe will allow you to do the same for Domains, (under Policies > Audit).   I work on a NT4 Domain, so I could be wrong.   This option tracks events on all domain clients, rather than server interaction, so shouldn't apply in your case.

if you go into routing and remote access, there should be a remote access logging folder in the tree un remote access policies. there you should be able to turn on the logging, this should provid what you need, turn on all the logging options, and set your log file settings to your disire.
