Hi everyone.
Can anyone know of a way to monitor internet usage for different users on the same computer ... There are 5 of us using the same comp running XP Home SP2 and we each have our own "user accounts". I need to find a way to monitor each individual so that any "overage" of the capped limit can be charged to the appropriate user. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Regards Dave.

Hi, i think the trouble here is using the same account for internet access. Any monitor would just query the account.
If however you were going thru a proxy server, you could catch usernames.

So, you need to find a proxy server to setup on the pc, and configure the pc to access thru the proxy.

Will see if I can track 1 down for you

Thanks SolMiester
Thought there may have been something associated with the user accounts that I missed ... It's not a big issue, just one that I thought may have had a simple solution.
