Hy everyone, I have a question about a kind of a logger for my debian.
I have a little project, where I'm teaching my collegs basics of the linux. so they will get a clean installed debian, with only ssh acces,
they must then do few basic things like aditing with vi, locating files etc...
what I want to do is to log all they do, so after they login to the system, everything they do, must be logged sothat I can see where they made mistakes, like for example what they typed, what they copied, what they uploaded or downloaded, etc... all handlings must be in a log.
What you could do, if you feel reluctant to pacct, is write you own script to 'synchronize' the history files of the users. That way you'll have a copy of what they have done. Or you could install and configure Unison File Synchronizer to do the same thing for you. But then you'll have to learn about Unison. Either way you'll have to put in some time, either to install, learn or write.
If you have lots of time you can always browse the user's history files but if they clear them you're left with nothing.
The history files only reflect what commands they have run, not when they logged in, how long they stayed logged in, and so on. In my opinion pacct is the best choice for what you need.
