This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Since you're asking this on stackoverflow, I'm going to give you a programming answer:

1) Set up winpcap on the server

2) Capture ethernet traffic

3) Reassemble TCP streams

4) Parse said streams for HTTP GETs

5) Store the URLs

I'm sure, however, that you'll find several applications that do this sort of thing. Ask on serverfault maybe?
