Instant Messaging

Check the Protocol Log

Instant Messaging servers log inbound (client to server) Instant Messaging protocol messages to the Internet Information Services (IIS) logs.

  1. Open the Instant Messaging server's %SystemRoot%\System32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 directory.
  2. Open one of the files.

Here is an excerpt from a typical protocol log.
