There is a sufficient finite number of ways, as to know who was working at the computer in the office or at home. They all happen to use the Windows API. A simplified version of the search comes to “event viewer” and “security” device.
Working with IP
To ensure access through the Internet to a remote computer, therefore, determine the ping the domain name, so simply will not work: you need to install lanspy.
But, even using the efficient operation of the scanner, it is not always possible reliably to know who works on a computer at a particular time.However, to find out under what username was logged in, possible.
To start working with lanspy already installed on the PC, you will need knowledge of one of the three parameters by which to scan a remote computer. For example, IP address, of course, if it is not protected proxies or other programs such LanSafety.
Using the control panel, the scanned addresses are recorded in the line “new task” and after 30-60 seconds, the user receives information that has been collected, not straining beyond the tasks defined by the configuration settings.
Opportunities the successful implementation of the scan
Thus, the question of how to know who is working at the computer becomes partially solved. As in the case of a successful scan, you receive the following information:
- Domain and NetBios names;
- the duration of a specific IP;
- the action performed on it;
- separate resources;
- created local and global groups.
Not included in the list of search options, you can see the interface of the program lanspy “settings”. Using the full set of features, “researcher” keeps track of all actions occurring with the remote computer.
Built-in port scan will allow you to find the services of them open on the remote PC. Will also collect feedback for each service. To use this option you need in “settings” mark the “check ports”, which features a 4 liner. One of them is “banners”, he is responsible for collecting responses to HTTP requests.
Thus, lanspy is largely similar to the version of LanScope, multi-threaded and is also a scanner on the local network. However, more pursuing security objectives of the studied network. For example, defining separate resources of the immediate environment, allows us to understand the extent of their employment and go to another resource.
