Get my user id using MFC in NT / ethernet

1. How can I get the user login name in the current NT machine (in ethernet)?
2. How can I get the complete user list avaiable in my ethernet?

Is there some way to do these using MFC?

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for.

   net user will give you the accounts list of users
   the /domain switch will parse the domain account list

Did that help?

Well, I will explain:

On my NT machine, when I will start my program, then my user id will be fetched from my NT machine, i.e., tomas_pd
When my program is running on another NT machine, then the another user id will be fetched from that NT machine, i.e., david_pd.

I need this functionality to say: 'Welcome tomas_pd' or 'Welcome david_pd' or 'Welcome ..?..' when my program is started on any NT.

So, I need some MFC-like ansver.

Use the Win API functions GetUserName to get the user name of the person currently logged in:

BOOL GetUserName(

    LPTSTR  lpBuffer,      // address of name buffer
    LPDWORD  nSize       // address of size of name buffer
   );

to get a list of all the users in a domain use NetUserEnum :

NET_API_STATUS
NetUserEnum (

    LPWSTR servername,      
    DWORD level,      
    DWORD filter,      
    LPBYTE * bufptr,      
    DWORD prefmaxlen,      
    LPDWORD entriesread,      
    LPDWORD totalentries,      
    LPDWORD resumehandle       
   );
