I am working on a network gateway appliance and like to log all the users going out to the internet through this gateway. Every user gets the ip address from a dhcp server and must be authenticated by a AD server first. All I have is the source ip address in the ip packet. Is there a way to query the userid from the AD server using the ip address?

Thanks.

There is no inherent Active Directory user to IP mapping.  You would have to use some other means to create a database that contains the mapping such as a logon script that populates a database with the user info and IP.

Can you give me a pointer how the logon script can be done? Is it run on the AD server? Thanks.

One other alternative might be to programmatically query the WINS database which holds both user and IP registrations and then parse the output to a file or database.

You can download a tool from microsoft to run a WINS query via command line. It's called NBLOOKUP and works pretty much like NSLOOKUP for DNS.
