Is there a utility or Active Directory feature that will allow you to audit users' login/logoff from a Windows Workstation? I know you can go to Event Viewer on each machine to check the audit logs but we want to be able to check from a centralize station.

I know Loglogic provides a product to do this using lasso.

You could probably use the opensoure lasso project called snare as well as a syslog server

No built in tool to aggregate and report from event logs on every workstation on the network.

You could write a simple logon logoff script   http://msmvps.com/blogs/kwsupport/archive/2005/02/24/36942.aspx

Thanks
