    Hi Anoop.

    Thanks for putting the docs together, it makes interesting reading. However I am trying to get some further details on ability to audit remote control sessions. Our old tool had the ability to audit all remote sessions against a specific host, however we are now deploying SCCM 2012 and have been told that it can only audit by client IP. Do you know whether it is possible to audit all remote sessions that have been made to a specific host name detailing which machine instigated the session as well as user name. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks
