Active Directory:  Monitoring Local and Remote Logins

Hello Experts!

    What would be the best way to monitor local and remote log-ins with the same account?  For example, lets say that I wanted to see if someone was logging in normally with their network account but also logging in remotely (via VPN) with their account as well.  Sharing their credentials in other words.    

      e.g.  I log into my account with my network credentials, then call John Doe and and share my log in credentials with him.  He then logs in via the VPN with my credentials.  Is there a way to track that or a script of some sort that could help keep tabs on this behavior?

Hi Itsm,
You can download AD auditor tool from this MS-networking utility link(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb795532.aspx) to monitor local and remote log-ins in active directory.
Additionally, you can have also explore this link(http://www.activedirectoryaudit.com/) which seems fit in your required AD environment.
