Is there a way to find who is connecting keep a track say a logon script that scan record all the machines that are connecting.
I want to do this only for 50 machines (That are servers).
Just need to record from which machine which user has connected through Mstsc.

The Logon/Logoff event logs can be viewed in the Security section of the Event Viewer. The Event Viewer can be launched from Administrative Tools.
