Localhost Proxy to log all web usage for roaming (offsite) laptops
Posted on 2009-05-17
I was recently asked to track the web movement of an employee using a next g device offsite and give a report on why the person in scope was persistantly running over the monthly download quota of the device.
Initially I implemented an antivirus/firewall solution with administration password to block p2p/torrent applications but I also want to know if there is some kind of free application that can log the websites the user goes to while also being invisible to the user. (like a proxy housed on the laptop itself).
This is easy within the company as all I would need to setup is a proxy server and allow web connectivity only if it first goes through the proxy. But this laptop has its own local gateway to the Internet (The next g device).
No... using history isn't going to cut it as this can just be deleted. I also do not want to restrict the user to guest permissions so that he can not delete history.
If there was some online app that saves history to a webspace on the fly that would be cool.
Is it possible to setup a web proxy on an external webdomain server and point the users browser to that webservers IP for proxy?
