How to Log All Logon Attempts to a Remote Desktop

  • Print this article

Microsoft Windows comes with a program called Remote Desktop that allows users to log in to a Windows system running Terminal Services and control the computer as though they were physically sitting at it. When a Remote Desktop client contacts a Terminal Services server, a log will be generated to describe the event. You will need to enable the Terminal Services Session Directory logging service to make this connection.
