Remote Desktop Logs in Splashtop

Check logs for remote desktop connections file transfers, chat sessions, and other history

Need an easy way to self-audit the remote access history of you and/or your users? The logging feature for Splashtop remote access makes it easy for you to find logs for remote access sessions, chats, file transfers, and other history.

Admins and team owners will have access to the logs of everyone on the team. Members of the team will only be able to see their own logs. Logs can be viewed and exported in the Splashtop web console.

Session Logs

Session logs allow you to see all remote connections. You’ll see the IP addresses of the two devices involved, start and end times, the duration of the session, the devices used, and the user involved.

You’ll also see if the remote connection was local or remote (the devices were on the same network or different ones). If there were any files transferred during the session, you’ll be able to see the file name.

File Transfer Logs

The file transfer logs give you more information regarding file transfers. Plus, you’ll be able see records for both in-session and off-session files transfers.

The file transfer logs will show the IP addresses and names of the devices involved, the time the transfer took place, which user was involved, and the name and size of the file. The logs will also show if the file was transferred from the local device to the remote one (upload), or if it was transferred from the remote device to the local one (download).

These logs do not include any contents of the files transferred.

Chat Session Logs

All chat sessions, whether they occurred in-session or off-session, will be recorded in the chat session logs. The content of the chat session is not included in the log.

History Logs

The history logs show any administrative actions, such as a computer being added or removed, and changes to group setting or permissions. Like with the other logs, the history log will report the time, account, and IP address of the user who took the action.
