How do I view logs for connections to VNC Server under Windows?


By default, VNC Server logs connections to the Windows Event Log. For every connection, the following information is logged:

  1. Connection to [server-cloud-id] is from user <RealVNC-account-email>
  2. Connected: <RealVNC-account-email> (from <IP:port>)
  3. <Authentication-success | failure> <RealVNC-account-email> (from <IP:port>) as <Windows account user> (VNC Server permission)
  4. Disconnected: <RealVNC-account-email> (from <IP:port>)(<disconnection-reason>)

To view this information:

  1. Open Event Viewer.
  2. Select Windows Logs > Application.
  3. Select Filter Current Log and choose VNC Server as the Event sources:
