|CProxy Server provides an Administrator with the ability
to learn about their users actions on the Internet. This includes the amount of data sent
and received through the proxy server, the protocols and Internet sites accessed and most
importantly, who they were accessed by. Users are selected by highlighting them in the
panel on the left side of the tab.
The account reporting section specifies the amount of time a user has been
online, the amount of data sent to the Internet and the amount of data received from the
Internet. A cost can be assigned to each of these fields, the total of which is given in
the field labelled Total Cost. The total cost counters can be reset by clicking the Reset
button. To disable accounting, uncheck the box labelled Enable Accounting.
When the icon flashes, this profile has logged into the proxy server and
occupies a slot in the licensing table.
By default, all users have unlimited time on the Internet. This can be
restricted by changing the value in the Allowed x mins total field to
another value (in minutes). Once the specified value has been reached, the users account
is automatically locked to prevent further access. At this point the Account
Locked checkbox becomes available and the Administrator must check this box to
unlock the users account.
User Auditing provides the Administrator with information on which protocols
the user accessed, the date of access, the server contacted and the files retrieved. To
view an audit trail;

the User Profiles menu.

If the user has accessed a website and you have highlighted that website
within the trail, the View and Add buttons become
available. Clicking View will load the selected site into your

and then clicking Add will add the selected site to the banned list.
If you wish to print a report of the trail, this can be done by either
