From within Windows 2000 how do I find out how many users are currently logged on to the server and who they are,  including users connected to the FTP site on the server.

The server is running Windows 2000 Server and Small Business Server.  

Any Ideas ???  Thanks.

               Right click on My Computer and select Manage.
    Go to SystemTools - Shared Folders and you'll see the sessions and the open files.
------------------
Also I would think about using auditing of logins etc.
Do you need this in realtime, to a logfile or what ?

I hope this helps !

Thanks, That is a start.  

It shows me sessions of when a user opens a file from the server.  But what about when a user first logs onto the server?  What about FTP users?  

It would be best if I could see this in real time, but a logfile would also work out.  

Thanks Again !

If you turn on auditing of logins, then you will have this info in the event logs and it can be exported.

See auditing
in the Windows Help - Lots of info there !!

You can also audit access to folders and files !!

-Go to start-> Run... Type MMC.
-Go to console & choose "add remove snap-in".
-Click on the add button & add shared folders & Internet information services.
-Same the custom console as whatever you like on the desktop or wherever.
-From the sessions in shared folders you'll see logged in users.
-From the properties of the FTP server in IIS click on current sessions in the ftpsite properties page.

You could use system monitor to get both info concurrently if you like.

For logons - use performance object = server, counter = logon total

Explanation of logon total
Logon Total includes all interactive logons, network logons, service logons, successful logon, and failed logons since the machine is last rebooted.

For ftp - use performance object = FTP service, counter = current annoymous users OR current nonannonymous users (depending on your FTP settings)

Explanation for current annonymous user
Current Anonymous Users is the number of users who currently have an anonymous connection using the FTP service.

Explanation for current annonymous user
Current NonAnonymous Users is the number of users who currently have a non-anonymous connection using the FTP service.

hope this helped
