I am a new Mac user and have struggled mightily to find an answer to this question in recent days. I’m running a MacOS Sierra client, and sharing a folder of files with other Macs on my local network. I have given them sharing-only accounts with read-write access, but I want to be able to monitor which users access, modify, and delete the various files in my folder.
I have seen one promising answer that told somebody to install the Server app and read logs within that. I have two questions though:
- Is there no built-in way for me to do this within a MacOS Sierra client?
- The logs on the Server app seem to show activity by IP address. I may have various users logging in from the same computer at various times, so I need to monitor based on user account rather than IP address.
Is this even possible? Seems like it should be, but I’m coming up empty. Could anyone point me in the right direction on this?
