Question Ip tracking


Hello, I am a pretty new user of Linux. I am in my 2nd college course for it right now and I need to do a small project for the class. I am trying to find out if there are any tools to track ip addresses that access a webserver. The idea would be to track the ip address of Comcast users and Verizon users to determine what companies' users are accessing more often for the purpose of marketing. I would assume it would involve saving the report to a file and then searching the file for the specified info for each internet provider. any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There are many tools for logging activity by ip addres on the internet, some relatively benign, others nefarious and deceitful, some actually evil. A simple web search should provide you with many links.

frankbell is amazingly polite when he states:

I am less polite. The entire purpose of giving students research projects is for the students to do research. Asking for the answer on a forum is like a middle school student giving math homework to the parents for them to do.

I don't see any issue doing research via questioning people with experience. I believe many of the things written on the web are written by people with experience, but thank you for the input.

Continuing my homework analogy; When the teacher in one class assigns homework, ask a different teacher for the answer. Very logical.
