Configuring ISA reports to Log username and urls

Iam using ISA Server 2004.All the clients are configured as web proxy clients.  The reports that are generated shows users as client IP addresses and URL's  target IP addresses rather than showing the username or the URL. Is there  any option to retrive the host name and url names by configuring  clients as 'secure nat' clients?Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think ISA server can do that in the report functionality, however you can use the logs to find out which user(s) accessed a website at a certain time with which IP address, etc..

If you really some nice reporting (tracking) of the user activity, you can install WebSense. This install on top of ISA server as a web filter and can also do URL filtering (its main function).
Go to Report in Monitoring Section , and create a report it will show you what options you have for reporting via ISA.

If you will take my advice , try GFI WebMointor 4 , extremely amazing.

I have generated the report.But it shows ip address of the client machines and ip addresses of the urls visited in stead of names.
I use the free web filer created by Sandy Anderson called Hostname Logger for ISA Server. Excerpt from the help file "This freeware Web filter replaces host's IP-address by the hostname before logging at the URL-field (WebProxy logs) for SecureNAT and Firewall clients.". I have used it with both 2004 and 2006 with great success.

You may need to scroll to the left/right to see the column client username on the logging tab in the monitoring section, but you should have the as one of the fields by default. If not right click on the column headers and choose columns as needed. You may only see "anonymous" listed under the client username field unless your access rules require the users to authenticate.
