Log Web Browsing Activity

P: n/a
Using .NET 2.0, how can I log/record all Web sites visited from a particular
computer - regardless of the browser (i.e., Internet Explorer, FireFox,
etc).

I would specifically like to record:
1. Domain name (entire specific URL requested - per page)
2. Date/Time of the request
3. local computer name, IP address, etc
4. have this app run as a Windows Service

I know how to record 2, 3, and 4 above, but not #1. Any suggestions are
greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure that such task should be implemented using Active SERVER
Pages technology

Why dont you just turn on logging in IIS and use something like AWStats

He is asking for the browser logging, not IIS (a web site) logging.

Instead of recreating the wheel you might want to google proxy server.

Yeah, I wondered about that.
I guess it might make sense if the server in question is the proxy/
firewall that provide access to the web for the client in question.
no ?

I haven't worked on that sort of stuff, but -in that scenario- it
sounds like a simple problem of logging all requests received by the
IIS server (ok, maybe not *all* of them, but just those from a
specific IP, or set of IPs)..

HTH,
