Get user login or computer name from ip address

Is there a way to identify a user on the network when all I have is their IP address? Ideally I'd like to get their login ID or computer name.

Using windows network and I am not an administrator on the network.

If you're not the administrator.. the answer is NO

if you are, and can login to the server, you can view the Security info on Events viewer

A specific computer may have multiple user name. For security reason, the computer will reveal such information. In the past, unix server had a "finger" service that was listing available accounts.  Now any secured host will hide this information from network and local user.

Best bet to locate computer name is as suggested with nbtstat. If you want to be more specific, use:
nbtstat  -A  123.123.123.123  |find "20"

Then to locate the logged on user, a free little command line utility called PSLoggedOn works well:

I was about to post the link for the PsLoggedOn tool, but the problem that the link is not exist any more, do you know where i can find it?

I checked the health of the link through Archive.org, and the answer was it's not exist anymore, check this:

Simple, go to this link, download the program, install it, put in the IP or IP range, it tells you the machine name, whats users it has, etc, even the OS and service pack :)

 Dear,

  As you are not admin you can easily use a tool called "Angry IP Scanner"

from : http://www.angryziber.com/ipscan/

 and get job done.

There are a lot of little utilities out there that will scan the network and tell you IP, MAC and NetBIOS ComputerName, but I don't believe Angry IP Scanner or most others will tell you who is logged on to the remote computer. PSLoggedOn will.
