How can I check who is logged into a network? Would it be possible to give a range of IP addresses, and search for logged in users from that? The reason I ask is that I want to create a program that will show who is logged in, so that other people can see if they are available or not.

Any help would be good cos I'm completely stuck!

Cheers EDDYKT, that looks great. Do you know a way of specifying which users to display, maybe by detailing the domain name, computer name, workstation name, server name, IP address, area, or something like that?

When I launch that VB program it lists all the users across the domain, which is pretty massive, and I'd like to be able to restrict the search.

If you can sort this the 250 is yours...

I don't think you can sort this, because you don't know where the user login.

The example shows you how to do in general so that when the call comes back, you can check the domain and user name before display on the screen
