    Accepted Solution

    Other than looking at the history on the local computer that he was using. In order to get the audit that you want you need to have a proxy server setup. You can actually setup a proxy server very easily using some linux distributions and an old computer. I've used IPCop in the past and it's very easy to setup.

    Hope this helps!

    Do you mean I need another machine with Linux and install IPCop on it?
    Do you mean IPCop is free downloan from net?

    Yes, you would install IPCop on another machine and it is free. It takes about 30 to setup. All you need is a machine with two network cards in it. One card would plug into your network and the other into your router to go straight to the internet.

    That will allow you to have detailed logs of what websites are visited, when, and by whom.
