Is there a way to log user activity by machine name? I have to find a way to log, manage and control user activity without the brutal performance hits and inconvenience of requiring the users to log in.

We use a few smart client applications. The issue we run into is (aside from the slow response times we see by requiring users to log in) the users get frustrated because the Smart client Application needs access to the internet. Uesrs do not uderstand that they need to launch a browser first to Authenticate and then they can use the app. Hope that makes sense.

Anyway, any information or even third party tools to help me manage traffic and usage with little or no user involvement would be greatly appreciated.

One scenario could be setting static IP's for users or reserving them in the DHCP and then use automatic login from IP in each user's setting.

I use following scenario:
1. have a user (e.g.) John Doe with a PC (named "johndoepc") and iPhone ("johndoeiphone")
2. create IP address group named "John Doe's devices" with two hosts: "johndoepc" and "johndoeiphone"
3. create user "John Doe" (or edit existing one) and under IP Addresses choose Automatic login from Address group "John Doe's devices"
4. any time a device named "johndoepc" or "johndoeiphone" wants to access internet, it will use account "John Doe".

However note that anyone can set their device's name to use other's account to access internet (e.g. if Jane Doe renames her PC from "janedoepc" to "johndoepc", she will use John's account).
