Tracking users' Internet visits



  • Hi everyone,

    New to pfSense, looking for a starting point to what I wish to do.  This is for a home network, wish to gather/review (when needed) of user traffic & site visits.  For those with kids, I'm sure you understand  8)

    What packages should I install & is there some place where there are examples of configs for this type of monitoring.  Not looking to block per say.

    Thanks!



  • Try talking with the kids, instead of spying at their back.
    Their trust in you will be completely ruined as soon as they'll realise what you're doing - and that's going to make no good for their relationship with you on the long term.



  • Was expecting this reply - thanks for the concern this is already happening.  But we have some stuff we do want to check on.

    Agreed. Trust but verify.



  • Yep - so trying to figure out the proxy parts I need to configure for this  - any suggestions?



  • Squid proxy will log all HTTP/S traffic.



  • Application level control may work better. There is a large business of parental control software that may work better.
