I need some sort of terminal services log.  I'm running Windows 2000 Server with Terminal Services in admin mode.  I would like to see some sort of log of users logging in and out.  I can't find anything regarding this.

Can someone point in the right direction?

Thanks,

to my knowledge there is no log-file. but you can configure the security-policies to audit successfull (or unsuccessfull) logons, which you can view with the eventviewer (security-log)

Well, that may work.  Can you walk me through setting that up?
