How do I check if a session was a direct connection (local connection) or a remote connection?

When you are connecting to computers, you may want to check if a session was a direct connection (local connection) or a remote connection (through Splashtop relay servers).

We have two ways to check it.

A. The session logs indicate whether a connection was local (peer to peer) or if it was remote through Splashtop relay servers.

Steps how to check the logs:

1. Login to my.splashtop.com, then click the Logs tab, then click the Sessions button.

2. The session logs include a column for the connection type: local, or remote through Splashtop relay servers.

The symbol below indicates a direct connection:

B. Check from the performance status during the remote session.

Go to the tool bar on top of the remote session window and click on the View Options button looks like any eye and select the last choice--Performance Status. From the performance status page we have the connection type will show you your current session is local direct or relay session.
