Is it possible to monitor Remote Desktop connection activity? It doesn't seem to show up in the standard logs.

I'd like to be able to see who logged on and when over a given time period (of a week, for example).

Thanks!

There's the system monitor:  http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/Library/9aa3769d-f7b0-4c7e-bafe-5d3e57f089a81033.mspx

But I've always found that to be a pain to use.  There are a number of 3rd party tools that will monitor things for you:
http://www.msterminalservices.org/software/Monitoring-&-management most have free trials, but I tend to like the tools offered by www.SysInternals.com

Wow...just tried Sysinternals and site was down. Found out that it sucked into the MS vortex. I guess every good thing must come to an end.

No, it's just been overloaded since the MS announcement.
