The Proxy Log page will only display logs if you have enabled logging on the > page.

There are several controls on this page in addition to the basic Month, Day, << (Day before), >> (Day after), and controls described at the beginning of this Section:
The Source IP: dropdown box allows you selectively look at web proxy activity related to individual IP addresses on the local network, or the activity related to ALL machines that have used the proxy.
The Ignore filter: box
allows you type in a regular expressions text string to
define which file types should be omitted from the web
proxy Logs. The default string hides image files

The Enable ignore filter: tick box allows you to control whether the Ignore filter: is active or not.
The Restore defaults button allows you to return the above controls and filters to their defaults.
