Is there any way I can determine which network UserID is currently logged on to a particular machine based solely on the machine name?

use  NetWkstaGetInfo with WKSTA_INFO_102

You'll need to have privs for this...

Otherwise use GetUserName api.

This might return a listing of what you are looking for:

http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/network/netwkstauserenum.htm

This is the description: "NetWkstaUserEnum lists information about all users currently logged on to the workstation, including service and batch logons, as well as interactive user logons. "

Hope this helps!
