VPN - logging VPN useage

Where might I find/configure a log of who connects to our VPN, whether 
or not they login to Netware once connected, etc.  The login to Netware 
portion is relatively unimportant, but I would like to track basic 
information like remote IP, username, connect time, disconnect time, 
etc.

Netware 6.5, BorderManager 3.8/SP4/IR3.  Client is 3.8.11 for all remote 
users.  We currently have two working VPNs - different servers, 
different OU's.

TIA.

I don't know if this has changed in later versions of BM but this is how I 
monitor activity in BM 3.7.

Open NWADMIN
Highlight the server, select "Tools" and then "Novell BorderManager"

On the screen presented right click the "Virtual Private Network".  From 
the options presented you should be able to work out what you want from 
there.

This is helpful to monitor current activity, but I would like to see a 
historical log, as well as configure how that log works - how many days 
it keeps, etc.  Is this information stored in NDS or is it available in 
a VPN.LOG type of file somewhere?  What I want is to be able to do is 
report on all VPN connection activity for a particular day, a specific 
user over the last six months - that sort of thing.

Thanks.

Try this

Open NWADMIN
Highlight the server, select "Tools" and then "Novell BorderManager"

On the screen presented right click the "Virtual Private Network" and 
select "View Member Activity/Log".  Two screens should be presented, one 
tiled "VPN Member Activity: server name" and the other "Audit Log 
Information for server name". 

Close down the screen titled "VPN Member Activity: server name". You 
should now be left with the Audit screen which allows you to specify dates 
etc.

I think the audit information is taken from the csaudit file which is 
found in \sys\SYSTEM\CSLIB

Hope that helps.

Monitoring Virtual Private Networks

The following sections describe the statistics used to monitor the 
operation of Novell� BorderManager� 3.8 Virtual Private Network (VPN). 
The VPN monitoring component is available through NetWare Remote Manager 
(NRM). This section contains information on the tasks a user can do 
using the NRM. For details on every field see the help on each page. The 
help is available on the upper right corner on each page and can be 
invoked using the (i) icon.

This section contains the following:

     * Logging into NetWare Remote Manager
     * Checking the VPN Real-Time Monitor
     * Checking the Audit Log on a VPN Server
     * Checking the Activity of a VPN Server

NOTE:  VPN Monitoring through NRM is available only for Novell 
BorderManager 3.8 servers. If your site-to-site setup has both Novell 
BorderManager 3.8 members and BMEE 3.6/NBM 3.7 members, then VPN 
Monitoring through NRM will only list the BMEE 3.6/NBM 3.7 members in 
the member list. You can monitor only the Novell BorderManager 3.8 
members using the NRM VPN Monitoring utility. For monitoring Novell 
BorderManager 3.7 members, you still need to use NWAdmn. The Synchronize 
All Servers/Synchronize Selected Servers facility provided in VPN 
Monitoring through NRM synchronizes only the Novell BorderManager 3.8 
members. For synchronizing the BMEE 3.6/NBM 3.7 members, you still need 
to use the Synchronize option available in NWAdmn.

None of these things, so far as I can tell, tracks VPN connect and 
disconnect, which is what I want.  I see how to see currently connected 
users and the history of their current connection, but I want a simple "joe 
user connected at this time and disconnected at that time."

Any way turn on logging of this?

Bordermanager vpn vs Cisco router vpn etc
I have a small client with a Novell 5.x server with about 35 clients, many of which are needing some sort of vpn access. Trying to figure out if it is easier to setup border manager for vpn access on the server or simply get a router that will provide vpn access. Which would be easier or more cost effective in this scenario over a dsl connection. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. Thanks Paul I guess it depends a lot on cost. Do you already have BMgr? (A copy that includes client-site VPN?) If so, just install that and configure it. As for using ...

vpn to vpn connection question
Hello: I've been asked to look into a vpn to vpn connection with a third party vpn server connection to our bm38sp2 vpn. Last week I had asked if this was possible and the answer was yes (but). Currently I have our vpn up and running to allow me secure access from home for remote management. The vpn is setup as the master vpn server. Now, if I try to connect to a third party vpn, will our server be a client in this case (I assume so)? If so, how does this impact our current setup as a master server? Thanks in advance, Chris. PS.

legacy vpn + new vpn
Hi, I am running a bordermanager nw6 3.7 server configured as a master vpn server. The slave is also a nw6 3.7 server and is in another country. Now we need to put another slave to this vpn, however w'd like to do that with bordermanager 3.8. The question is if we update this server from 3.7 to 3.8, will the legacy vpn run without a problem, while 3.7 on the other side is running. (I think this will be no problem, correct me if I am wrong) On the other hand I want to configure a new master vpn on the same server by use of imanager. The other slave will be the new company.
