The Mikrotik PPPOE server supports session logging.

Um... it's probably technically possible, you'd have to tell us a lot more about the software your deploying and configuration of your network.

If every user has a UID within the network, you can identify the owner of any file they create.

Seems to be a common thread with your posts: you want to capture all network traffic, read chat sessions, see others pictures in this thread, and...All of which adds up to things being a bit on the suspicious side. Why, exactly, are you wanting to do this???

In order to log the network traffic on a per-user basis you need a centralized authentication service and - as already noticed - Mikrotik can do it as well. Regarding your other questions, especially
Code:
if i can know what they are chatting?
this is called spying, since if the users take a log of their conversations, you have to retrieve their personal files and maybe this shall violate the privacy law of your Government. On the other hand you can always find a way to "sniff" their conversations at the time they are spoken, but unless you belong to some Secret Service organization (the practice would be questionable in any case) most likely you're not entitled for doing so.

For these reason, your thread violates the hacking/cracking rule of these fora and I'm going to bury it forever. Nuff' said.
