Auditing encompasses a lot of areas.

Here's what I configure on my servers:

Audit account logon events -> Success, Failure
Audit account management -> Success, Failure
Audit directory service access - Failure
Audit logon events -> Success, Failure
Audit object access -> Failure
Audit policy change -> Success
Audit privilege use -> Failure
Audit process tracking -> Not defined
Audit system events -> Success

Well I'm not 100% you will be able to gather all information like MACS but you will get IP addresses

Another third-party tool http://www.terminalserviceslog.com/blog/index.php/2010/01/11/configuring-auditing-for-windows-servers/

The logs will provide you a hostname. You can get figure out the mac using getmac /s <hostname>.

You can NOT just get Remote Desktop Events. There is no such thing as Remote Desktop Auditing you must turn on auditing which audits other Events.
