Here's a nifty little freebie that can help you keep tabs on your network usage. Bet you'll think of some great ways to use it.

List all the network workstations from which the user has logged in. The user's id, full name and the IP addresses of the workstations are all printed. The administrator has to specify a server that has LDAP running. In addition, a container must be set to query for users.

Usage: listaddrs.pl prv-nds1 ou=nts_server,ou=prv,o=novell

Setup: The administrator needs to ensure that the [Public] user has Read and Compare rights to the Network Address attribute.

Platforms: Tested on SUSE Linux 9.0 Professional and WinXP with the Perl package from www.activestate.com. It should work on any platform that supports Perl.
