find out who logged in last to a windows server then generate back drop with the details

Is there a any freeware program that when i log into a server it tells me
what server i am on
IP address
login time
The last person to login

Then generate the backdrop

i was looking at whoiam which does most things but doesn't tell me who logged in last.

bginfo is good stuff.  I assume you are after the user before you.  You could look in the profiles directory and pull out the second last one used with a batch file:

@echo off
pushd %userprofile%
cd ..
for /f "skip=1 tokens=1,2,3,*" %%a in ('dir /o-d ^| find "DIR"') do set lastuser=%%d & set lastdate=%%a & set lasttime=%%b & goto end
:end
echo Last user was %lastuser% logged off at %lasttime% on %lastdate%
popd

As to what you want to do with that then.... perhaps bginfo could look at the environment string %lastuser% as one of it's display fields and you could set the script to run as part of your login process to fill the environment variable?

Don't think y ou can get last logged on user from anything since once you log on,  you will overwrite the reg key that held that information  (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultUserName).

You can generate the background pic using this utility for all the other things you wanted: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Miscellaneous/BgInfo.mspx

Cheers, I like scripting as you may have guessed :-)  Lets hope the asker with 3 deletions out 8 questions, several of which were forced accepts and a dodgy choice of answer on the other and grades A B C B thinks so too!
