Thanks! I guess that will also work, but there is nothing simpler than that?
Windows Server doesn't keep records/logs/events when users logging in with VPN ?

It does, but it is actually much more complex.  You can enable detailed auditing, and within the configuration, you can configure the systems and successful and/or failed events you wish to audit. Following articles outline how to enable and analyze the results:

However using auditing can be time consuming to filter and extract as the logs become very large very quickly.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
