How to monite URLs which users accessed?



  • hi all,
    I wanna to monitor the URLs which users accessed, how can I did this? And also I wanna to mirror my traffic through pfsense to a special IP, what shall I do? thx!



  • Not sure if I understand you correctly, are your wanting to log every website that users on the network visit? This can be done by installing Squid and configuring it as a transparent proxy. http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Setup_Squid_as_a_Transparent_Proxy
    You will then need to install lightsquid to allow you to view the reports.



  • yes, I really wanna to log everything which user visited. ;)
    A little problem: It looks like that a web proxy will make some website cannot be visited like www.alipay.com (This is the most famous online-paying website in China). Is there any way for me to prevent this problem happening? thx!

    BTW: I think the best solution for my problem is to make a port mirroring, but I dont know how to do this… :(

    Pretty straight forward once you got the switch that supports it. Check your switch's manual. You have to deal with the traffic being mirrored somehow too.
