A quick and dirty way is to use nbtstat (depending on what protocols your network is using) :
nbtstat -a machinename
will give you a list of remote names associated with that machine. It shouldn't be too difficult to work out who the user is.  If you know the IP address you can use the alternative of :
nbtstat -A x.x.x.x

Get a copy of loggedon.exe from www.sysinternals.com.  nbtstat works but is not as nifty.
