These pages detail the mods to Tacacs+ V2.1 software and associated perl programs and html pages required to write seperate user files for each users showing the time they where on line. These files are then available for access by the users via a webpage.
The Central West Web has three classes of user:- full internet access (INT), world wide email access (CWE) and local email access only (CWW). Only INT users are bill for online access. CWE users are charged a yearly mailbox charge and CWW users have free access and free local mail. All users have access to the local website and so can always check their hours and send us mail even when their access has expired.
The user's info and their current access class is stored in a newdb database. Amoung other things this data base allows full email names such as Matthew.Ford@cww.octec.org.au and matchs login IDs to full names. The code to support this database has not been released yet.
