I have many Windows 2000 Pro workstations logged to a Win NT domain.

How can I know remotely which user is currently logged in to a specific Win2k Pro workstation.

Thanks

-Right click on my computer on the desktop. Choose the option for the context menu called 'Manage'..

1.-If you expand shared folders in the computer management , you can see who's logged in, etc...
2.-At the very top of the hive where it says "computer management (LOCAL)...right click & choose connect to another computer... repeat step one...

-Check the sessions tab... You'll see the user, computer & files they are accessing... Its no different than server manager in NT4.. (Which you can use as well btw)

This will not show the logged in user.. but it will show uses connected to shared resourses in that workstation.
