Hello guyz,

Please there something I likes very well in Linux. I saw a Linux server in an ISP, whatever websites, Ip address and activities done by workstations and clients will be passing on the screen E.g: http://www.aol.com 172.16.0.25

I hope you get what I meant? So I need scripts or commands on how to enable that after a new Linux server installation.

Thanks.

Jude.

Well,
Most of the ISPs use squid and that has good logging ability (see access.log)
But there  are lot of other tools.. Most famous one is I think "MRTG"
Here I am giving u few links.. u can download and try.  there are really lots of them..

Activities, can u explain more? If u say network activities of each clients/workstations, run "iptraf" but u must install it first. It will monitor each workstation by MAC address and ip address as well.

I think what it is : IS  --->start the "snmp service" buddy.

That's the server auditing service in linux servers. :) that will log anything on your server. And the remote access that u refer to is most likely using VNC another service which must be enabled in the server as well.
