    Default ASP & Event Viewer: Difficult Problem

    I need to have access to Event Viewers active log through VB or ASP and be able to make it web based. For example, if an administrator&#039;s at home he/she would need to view event logs for remote computers over the web. I don&#039;t know if this is even possible. Can anyone help me?<BR><BR>Thanks

    (pumping up chest pompously)<BR><BR>"Not too difficult for *some* of us..." :)<BR><BR>I&#039;ve done a bit of digging...<BR><BR>The event files seem to be stored as AppEvent.Evt, IExplore.evt, SecEvent.Evt and SysEvent.Evt in the X:Winntsystem32config directory... Whether these are updated instantaneously or not is open to debate, although I would think they are.<BR><BR>You could access these files using a Scripting.FileSystemObject and read in their content...<BR><BR>The structure of the file is strange (not as you would expect), but I could open it in notepad, so I guess you could parse it.<BR><BR>But that&#039;s up to you I&#039;m afraid :)<BR><BR>Craig.
