Logging Clients Activity

Post by dcipher » Fri Dec 06, 2019 10:18 pm

Hi

I would like to be able to log when a user logs into the server and when they log out. So at a minimum I need the user name, date and time of login and date and time when they logout. It would also be helpful if I could log what applications they used. Is this possible and if so how is it done?

This is being requested by various agencies to meet their increased security demands so that is the reason for the request.

Thanks,
Simon

I never thought to look at Server Genius so thank-you for pointing me in that direction. It looks like what I need.

You can easily create a logon.bat, place it as start script in the user profile.

Content could be something like this:

Code: Select all

@echo off
echo %date%-%time:~-11,2%:%time:~-8,2%:%time:~-5,2% > %userprofile%\desktop\userinfo.txt <-- path to you logfile
echo %username% >> %userprofile%\desktop\userinfo.txt <-- path to your logfile
