    Descriptive text explaining what it's for, and how to use it:

    • The audit module AUDITLGN.NLM is designed for registration of the following events:
      USER LOGIN to a NetWare server
      USER LOGOUT of a NetWare server
      NIGHT CONTROL - control of stations logged on to the server at night ( at midnight).
      It allows to find users who don't turn off their computer for the night
    • The module registers all logon events with a NORMAL status (similarly to MONITOR.NLM program).
      If the interval between log on and logoff is shorter then 0.2 seconds an event can be not registered in the system.
    • The module can control status of maximum of 200 (or 2000) users logged on to the server.
    • The program enables to present maximum of 77 users logged on to the server at one screen.
    • AUDITLGN is dedicated for servers working on the NetWare platform version 5.0, 5.1, 6.0 and 6.5.

    Installation of AUDITLGN program on NetWare server:

    Module AUDITLGN.NLM should be copied to a controlled server to SYSTEM folder on SYS volume.

    Start of AUDITLGN.NLM module:

    The program can be started from a server console level immediately or automatically as a command line in AUTOEXEC.NCF file:

    AUDITLGN /a /ppath /m /n /X

    where:

    /a - active connections screen is enable (default is disable)
    /m - monthly log is enable (default is disable)
    /n - night control is enable (default is disable). It is created a separate log file containing a list of stations which are logged on to the server at midnight of every day
    /ppath - set the path for log file

      path - path for log file: e.g. DATA:LOGS/AUDIT
      (!! without char "/" or "\" at the end of line)
      in this example log file will be: DATA:LOGS/AUDIT/AUDT0610.LOG
      default path: SYS:ETC
    /X - a start of the program with this option causes the additional audit records are created in an XML format.
      For every event a separate file is created.
      Files are written on the SYS volume in the ETC/XMLLOG folder.
      Without /X option there is created only a standard event log - AUDITLGN.LOG in a structure as below:
    LOGIN: 012 20060219 09:19:57 ADMIN1 IP 192.168.0.121
    LOGOUT: 012 20060219 09:44:35 ADMIN1 IP 192.168.0.121
    .....

    example:

    auditlgn /a /m /pDATA:LOGS/AUDIT

    Default the AUDITLGN.LOG event log is created on the SYS volume in the ETC folder.
