The Connection History feature stores information about VNC/RDP/SSH/etc connections that were established via the VNC Manager in a centralized log.

When Local, Amazon S3 or Dropbox.com-based configuration profile is used, the VNC Manager logs events in a XML file. When Database-based configuration profile is used, the log is stored in a database.
