You may never be sure of this.

Since the VPN system can do this and may not you are the best person to look for any log.

In other words, a log is not required.

Thanks for your reply. I don't want to log but I wonder if windows keeps who logs in by default?

Who says the system manager of the server you log in to has configured it the default way? If you want to know what he knows and what he doesn't know, better ask him.

It's configured by people.

There is no default on this one because there are many VPN solutions. Because of that you ask the person that set it up. Or look around your machine for files created in the last day.
