    Look at the event viewer security on that server.

    You can use Windows builtin command line tool called 'QUERY'
    Click Start -> Run -> Cmd.exe -> OK

    QUERY SESSION /SERVER:servername

    For more info:
    QUERY /?

    Hope this helps!

    That shows me who is on now, how do I find out who has been on there in the past?

    You can alos look at the document and settings and profile folders. Click on details. This will tell you when each profile has changed and that will tell you who logged in and what time.
