    Dear Experts,

    This is something related to the Intranet security tools.

    I need a tool which logs all the info about the users(By IP address) who are logging on to the system and the files they are copying from my system. Is there any tool available for doing this.

    Another problem I am facing in my LAN is, many people in my LAN are running Packet capture applications and URL logging applications such as 'LittleBrother', I want to prevent them from monitoring my URLs. I tried to figure out some ways to hide my URLs, such as using some URL encryption tool such as IP alt,etc. They are only encrypting the starting URL but when I enter the site it is showing all the actual URLs. Is there any way to secure my self from being monitored.

    Yes, there could be solutions to your problems. It depends on how sophisticated your snoopers are.

    There's really two such as this on your PC and software that's actually running on the network. "Little Brother" was purchased by SurfControl. You can read up on the software here:

    Several things can be done to "get around" these products. One is to find Anonymous Surfing sites that "Surf Control" has not flagged. For example, go to and surf from there. If it's blocked by the software -- use their IP address as opposed to typing in "" - depends on how sophisticated the filters are.

    The problem is that if they're running this, they may (and probably are) also be running keystroke logging software, in which there's little way around it.

    Some of these URL trackers/keystroke loggers are running as a process on your PC. There are products available to scan your system and rid your computer of this scummy software.

    SpyCop is one, but their trial is limited and it's pricey.

    Anti-Keylogger is another - and be sure and check out Who's Watching Me.

    Warning though, the snoopers are getting more effective. If it's a business situation, they won't allow you to continue to thwart them before they fire you - so if it's a work thing - be careful.

    Good luck. I'm on your side and believe that privacy equals freedom. Otherwise, the word "freedom" means little.

    Keep us updated and all the best!
