Command to see what users are loged on to a remote machine

Question:

You have been given a computer name and have been asked to remotely find out  who is logged onto it – what command would you use?


Would this be nbtstat - a??? heve tried it but it doesnt seem to let you know who is logged on to it.

Anyone know what commend you would use?

Thanks

What OS?

Use "finger" or "who" in Linux or UNIX.

in case of a windows box you can try a network scan. download a free version of the GFI languard www.gfi.com. That program shows you who is logged in among other information. But i must warn you that this procedure is illegal(at least in most countries, certently in EU) in case of you scanning across networks.

you could use an excellent software from sysinternals called psloggedon which is part of the pstools package -

I would also recomend the tools from sysinternals. I use them all the time. But you'd better download them soon. I heard Sysinternals was purchased and that those tools may end up not being free.

MY tool of choice is the Angry IP scanner, available at:
http://www.angryziber.com/ipscan/

Before scanning, go to [Options] --> Select Columns
You can tell it to look for almost anything.

It can also export anything it finds for later processing

Quick Tip: If you're using a Linux server with a Samba domain, you can find out what users are on what computers with smbstatus

The command below will help you out if you are using Terminal services.

Go to the command prompt and run the following command. Query session

In your case the command would be: Query session /server:<server IP>



Displays information about sessions on a terminal server. The list includes information not only about active sessions but about other sessions that the server runs.
