Hi, Windows server 2003 std domain

How do I find out from which workstation one of my users logged in?

I remember there was a "user login" auditing or something like that ,.. that could be used to keep track of this , but I'm not sure if this is enabled in our server

I only need to see his last couple of logins.

    If you have auditing enabled already, go to your security event log on one of your domain controllers (if you're tracking domain-based logins).  Look for event ID 673 for successful logins.  The service name will include the SAMAccountName of the workstation, which is the workstation's name followed by a "$".
