If I know the IP address and machine name for a PC can I find out who is logged on from another machine (if possible without being an admin ? )

Thanks

It's possible by the dos command:
nbtstat -A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
You get the resolution of netbios over tcp/ip
good luck from france.

Sorry - my fault

One last thing and then I'll go. for my machine this brings back the following:


       NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table

   Name               Type         Status
---------------------------------------------
BWILKINSON     <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
WESTPORT       <00>  GROUP       Registered
BWILKINSON     <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
BWILKINSON     <03>  UNIQUE      Registered
WESTPORT       <1E>  GROUP       Registered
WILKINSON      <03>  UNIQUE      Registered

I think I'm only logged on once. Which one do I pick ?

nbtstat gives you the computer name not who's logged on it.

your station is name BWILKINSON ; <00> Unique
Your domain access is WESTPORT ; <00> group
And your UID is WILKINSON ; <03> unique because the other <03> is your computer name.
Best regard.
