At some point in the past I came across a log of the computers that have logged in to our terminal server.  I would like to find that history / log / list again.  Can anyone help?  I am trying to make sure that we don't have any computers that aren't supposed to be accessing terminal services...

I will try that.  However, there is something out there that already exists - I have had my eyes on it before!  I will try this as well though.  The file the article above refers to is not present - so I currently don't have this particular feature on - even though something similar exists somewhere...

Event viewers may give me the information.  Which one should I look at and how should I filter it?

this depends on if you have auditing setup on your domain, which i am guessing you do as you have seen these entries before

it will be under the system log (i think) and as for filtering.....windows event viewer filtering sucks...you don't have much play with that, maybe exporting to excel may help you
