Q

How can I log all connections to Terminal Services so that I can see who is logging in and out?

Expert Christa Anderson helps a reader lof all Terminal Services connections on a Windows 2000 server.

I am running Terminal Services on a Windows 2000 server. I would like to log all connections to TS so that I can see who is logging in/out. How can I do this?

The answer here isn't specific to Terminal Services, since that's just another way of monitoring domain logons. What you can do is enable security logging and then view those logon attempts in the Event Viewer. Just be warned: logging all logon attempts -- successful or not -- will generate a lot of events to sort through.
