Remote Desktop Reporting

Hi There!

We would like to be able to track information about our RDP Sessions including:

Originating IP
Login Name
Time Connected
Time Disconnected/Logged off
Apps Run (Optional)

Happy to buy something third party so long as the expense isn't significant ($100 ish).

Cheers

I generally add the lines below to each users logon and log off script to create a log file. It would give you UserName, ComputerName, date and time, in a simple single line, followed by the IP from which they connected, if needed. If you wish to know logoff times as well, you can add the same lines to a log off script in group policy (if you don't already have one: User Configuration | Windows settings | Scripts | Logoff). You likely won’t need the last line (IP address) in the log off script.

As written below it will create the log/text file in \\Server\Logs\LogOns.Log and the entries will look like:
