Last login for VPN access

Hi guys,

We are currently trying to investigate if there is a way to determine last login access to our Active Directory via a VPN method.

We currently have several methods that our users can VPN in to our corporate network.

What we want to know is if there is a way to verify last login access via a universal way in our Active Directory or other means, which is separate from each VPN method?

In other words, irrespective of what VPN method they use to get connected to our corporate network, is there a way to check last logon to our Active Directory which maps back to/or updates an attribute in Active Directory to define when they last logged on to our Active Directory (via a VPN method)?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Since your VPN requires logging into the machine, you can always set up a script to monitor the VPN server's security (audit logon and failure - you can google the event ID #s) event logs.

if you use a VPN device then there should be a way to generate log files for this.

You should be able to find examples of these scripts all over the internet to accomplish different goals - powershell is a very good language for this.

depending on your needs, you might have to investigate third party network monitoring software. There are many of these - some of them open source.

browse sourceforge or google solar winds alternatives.

The domain controller will have logs also that monitors the whole domain and you can filter these in your script to only include the machines you want to monitor. Just re read your post.
