    Is there a way to log when users use Remote Desktop to log into a PC?

    We are running Windows XP Pro on all of the PCs in a domain environment. We would like to know when a home user remotes into their work PC. Thanks!

    You can track logging successes and failures by setting up an audit policy using Local Computer Policy. From the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Audit Policy | Audit logon events. Be cautious logging successes, as this will make the event log very full.
