    I don't think you'll find the IP in the logs. You should find successful
    logins in the security log, if you have enabled logging that.

    Generally, to get the IP information, you need logging of successful
    connections enabled in a firewall or router log. That information should be
    there and is often logged in usable form but this depends on the router
    vendor. The ICF and Windows firewalls can be configured to log successful
    connections. You then need to weed out the correct entries and compare the
    logs.

    I've never tried to do this myself, but that's the route I'd approach it
    from.

    SP-2 firewall does log connections but only outgoing, whats stange is that I
    dont have the success logs in Event viewer. I can see the ones that failed
    from my PPC, but no succesfull ones. Im enabling (figuring) logging on my
    router to see if can do better.

    Strange though Im sure XP use to log succesfull incomming connections before
    SP2

    The setting for logins allows logging of success, failure, or both. You
    want both enabled.

    I'll see if I can test the firewall logs. I had thought that if you logged
    successful connections it would give you inbound connections. It certainly
    logs dropped packets inbound.

    I promise I have LOG ALL tciked in event viewer and am connecting using my
    PPC-VPN. But theres no logs of the succesfull connections, ive tried
    rebooting and not having event viewer open when making the VPN connection
    etc to no avail.

    Is this one for the acceleration team I wonder?
