I currently look at raw syslog data "catchall" files to see when my vpn users have logged on, it looks like this:
3 Oct 16 2008 17:33:05 Group = groupname, Username = user, IP = xx.x.xx.xx, PHASE 1 COMPLETED
It doesn't show however, when they log off.   How can I get a quick look at 3 different vpn users and their on, off activity?

Thanks,

Patty

there isn't an easy way to do this. What you'll need to do is configure snmp traps and have a syslog server set up. Then call TAC and ask them exactly what MIB's apply to vpn user conect & disconnect. They'll provide that to you and once you configure it, then you'll see syslog messages every time user connects & disconnects. However, you'll still need to read through the syslog text file and search 'usernames' in it and get info that way. Not a really graceful method

TAC is the Cisco technical assistance center. Do you have any support contracts for this ASA device? If not, you should call a cisco partner in your area and get smartnet support. This is necessary as if your device fails or there is a major problem, cisco would not be able to help you without a contract
