    A user's User Agent will usually tell you what is being used to access the site. However, this can be spoofed. If you want to track it, I can only suggest you use an analytics software to track and analyze the software. Personally, I use Google Analytics which tracks that and a lot of other information about your site and the way users interact with it.

    Is there no way like in vbulletin where the user account tells you what they last connected with, user agent wise?

    If not is it stores anywhere within a log file?

    The logs do not store user agents, no. An add-on may add that, but I do not believe I've seen one.

    We never store the user agent, except in the session data -- your web server logs probably do though (if you can trace an IP back to a user).
