Hello ,
   Is there any way to track the login source(IP address/ Windows User name) of a particular login which is logged into login SQL server without the use of Profiler trace?

Example:- A user called xxx(Windows account) logged in to his machine with the windows credentials and tries to access Production database server which is hosted in network with SQL login.
Now can we able to record/ track from which source(Machine IP address/ Windows User Name) the particular sql login has been made?
