In some classes, students take online tests and some types of network activity (for example trying to find the answers in will be considered as cheating during the exam. It would be useful if instructor could monitor online activities of each student to detect cheating. The goal of this project is to develop such a tool using client/server architecture. Tool should display the student's hostname and the website visited during unauthorized web activity. Professor should able to see the applications opened by all students and he will have an option to view the log files of all the students during the session and also at the end of the session. The tool will display the student's hostname during login and logout from the network.
