How to determine what users are accessing on an ICP$ Client Connection

Domain Controllers are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Std SP1
This particular server in question is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Std Edition
Server will be decommissioned shortly
Shares, Sessions, and Open Files are indicating the Domain uses have client connections to this server via the IPC$ share.
How do I determine what network resource, application, printer, service, they are using?
While monitoring manually the Shares, there is no other client connection to any other share...
Thanks kindly,
Paul (pappajade)

there is also a nice tool called ShareWatch, useful if you want to monitor one or more server's shares simultaneously

However the suggestion to utilize ShareWatch was very helpful.  I have determined that all the sessions are connected to a print queue function.  ATTA-BOY...

You are welcome, first time posting a question and receiving a resolution; so new to this way of networking.  Was looking to see if estebs1978 was going to follow-up.  And again the recommendation by yourself to utilize ShareWatch was an effective direction to determine the process/service/app that the domain users were connecting to...
Thanks again...
