    If you log to a syslog server, you can track what IP addresses try to access your router. If that's not what you need, be more specific as TVTV stated.

    You already started 2 or more threads on that topic, do you really need even more?

    Not sure what you mean by user. Tomato, like most home routers, doesn't require individual user logins. If you mean IP address, that there is a known user associated with each computer and each computer has a known IP address, then try using syslog to get what you want. You can assign IP addresses with static DHCP as I do so that computers always get the same IP. If you are trying to track individual users on shared computers then you are probably out of luck as there is no way for Tomato to identify this that I can think of. You could set up a separate proxy maybe that requires individual authentication. As has been said in other threads, some of what you are asking for is available through OpenDNS which I also use and like. But OpenDNS isn't going to tell you who is doing what because it will only see the WAN IP address so will see what is being accessed (if stats are enabled), but not who.
