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)
