PIX VPN users

I can't keep a log or view the users that are logged in to my PIX Firewall. I have a PIX 515E and want to view the users that are connected to the VPN network. I can see the IP connection but I will like to see the users that I have in the configuration.
Here is some part of the configuration:

P.S. I took a lot out from the actual configuration. Anyways, I hope that my question is explain well and understood.

You can't.  You need an external radius server.
Look at what grblades has nicely documented here:

Thanks Tim :)

Are the users prompted for a passoword (in addition to the group password) when they connect?
If they are then I would expect 'show uauth' to show the usernames who are logged in.

The system I am using uses a Radius server primarily so that I can issue different access lists to each individual users VPN session.
'show uath' does work for me with this configuration.
