My boss has asked me to go into Citrix and find out if we can look up when a user logged in last and how long they were logged in for using.  The are using the application RDP that we have published.  We are using Presentaion Server 4.5 on Windows 2003 Server R2.

Any idea on where to look and find this info out?

You could use/setup Citrix Resource Manager that comes along with PS 4.5.

More about it here: http://support.citrix.com/servlet/KbServlet/download/12615-102-16427/Monitoring_Server_Performance.pdf

(I used it log time ago, but I wasn't impressed with the reports :)

I have not tested Citrix Edgesight, but it should be superior to Resource Manager: http://community.citrix.com/edgesight/

Another option is to create a logon/logoff script that writes logon/log off activity. (you will not get correct time on disconnected sessions that times out).

It's simple with Resource manager. Once you have configured resource manger, go to the Reports tab in the resource manager, and you can get the user summary. You can select the user history and can check the datas. However, if you haven't configured it, then u cannot find the historic data.
