You could use nbtstat -c from the command prompt. That should give the remote name and ip address.

Using Win2k or NT or most flavors of UNIX, you can type "netstat -an" and show your active connections. The one you are looking for will be one shown as ESTABLISHED. Although, if you are connected through a proxy server you will only see connections to the proxy server.
