There is a codeplex project for Remote Access Monitor - you can use it to detect logins. If you aren't interested in the "monitor" side of things, you could rip out the code examples and use it to log to a file instead.

To see current connections:

  • open "Users" tab in Task Manager
  • or use qwinsta on command line.

To register all connections (logins) to the Event Log, enable Account login auditing in secpol.msc.
