1 Answer 1


You have to have something that actually knows about the traffic. As you say, RADIUS doesn't do that; it's authentication and authorization to use (or be on) a network. There's a few approaches to solve this problem.

  1. Put a software agent on the end-user's machine that records all web traffic.
  2. Force all internet-bound traffic through a proxy server that logs.
  3. Do some form of packet capture or traffic logging at the internet gateway.

All of these will have pros and cons for your specific use case; they may need extra work to capture encrypted traffic.

That's to say nothing of whether or not this is allowed in your company or country.

  • thank you for your reply but I can not install software on the end user's machine because my system will working on general places like park , hotels ...etc Jan 22, 2018 at 14:16
  • That's why I listed the most common ways to accomplish the goal. Items 2 and 3 don't involve putting software on the client machine.
