Windows 7 - Where to see failed RDP login tries (over RDP)?

Hello all,

   we have a Windows 7 machine with RDP enabled, where user that works on that machine connects via a forwarding tunnel.

   As I am a bit concerned about constant brute-force attacks (like on Win Servers), I wonder where could I see recorded logon attempts on RDP protocol / port?

   I tried looking around Event Manager, but I can't find the records.

Thanks a lot! :-)

On Windows 7 you should be able to do the following to see the Remote Connection Logs.

1. Open the Event Viewer
2. Click Application Services and Logs
3. Click Microsoft
4. Click Windows
5. Click TerminalServices-LocalSessionManager > Operational
6. Click TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager > Operational.

I see my attempts under step 5.

Hope this helps!
