Why should a Windows 2003 server not show the open sessions in
my computer -> Manage -> shared folders -> Sessions

when there are two remote desktop users?

Is there any other way to check this?

You cannot see that as open sessions in that way.

You can use the Terminal Services Manager under administrative tools in the start menu,

or you can just simply go to a prompt start -> run -> cmd

and type "netstat".

That should show you what connections are active on your computer.

All right, but netstat does not give you the usernames for the sessions. In this case nbtstst seems closer to what I need, although it does not give usernames either.
What I need is just knowing who is there in a compact and clear way.

Have you tried to run the Terminal services manager located under administrative tools?

There you get the username, session ID, logon time etc.

That's it. I had used it once and forgotten!

Now, is there any command to get this same information?

you can go to a command prompt and type query user.

That should give you the same information.
