The host will always log the following events to the application log:

  • Service Start/Stop
  • Login/Logout
  • Remote Control Start/Stop

Follow this procedure to view log files:

  1. Access the host preferences:

  2. Under Event Logs, click the View Files button.

    A list of available log files is displayed.
