Log of remote web workplace usage - track past user activity?

Running SBS 2003 with remote web workplace and we need to see at what times an individual connected to the network and hopefully how long they were connected. Anyone have any comments on a way to do this looking back a few weeks?

Thanks,
-Will

The easiest way to do this is by using an analytics tool to look at your old weblogs.  By default IIS logs are stored in C:\windows\system32\Logfiles.

A tool that I use to analyze logs is Smarterstats.  They have a free version which allows you to analyze the traffic from a single website.  It has a clean user interface that is easy to setup and use.  Check it out: http://www.smartertools.com/SmarterStats/Features/Web-Log-Analytics-Website-Statistics.aspx

I'm with you on the IIS logs. I see the info I need in there. I installed smarterstats and I get nice summary info if I was looking for global site stats, but even with the custom reports I'm not really able to get anything useful out of it. For instance I cant see a way to find out how long a particular user or even IP address was online. I'll keep tinkering and maybe try some other tools.

Ended up using WebExpert Pro to analyze the logs. Same idea as SmarterStats, just more flexible for what I needed.

Thanks!
