I want to find the username and ,if possible, the machine name of the user who has a particular file open on a particular server (NT4 Server).In Admin Tools /Service Manager I can find this out, but can I get at this from a client?

Try Microsoft's WMI SDK (Windows Management Instruction).
If not Mabry or Desaware sell NT tools.

You can definitely do that using WMI, but then the NT4 server and your local machine both should have WMI core components installed.

I have done that using WMI.

I've had a look at WMI and it seems like a big overhead to achieve something relatively simple. I there not a network API call I could make to get this information?
I've increased the points a bit.

I could send u WMI code to do this. Its very simple and would just take 20 lines of code to achieve this.
