If I have the name of a computer on the local network, can I find out who's currently logged on to that computer?  All the computers run Windows NT Workstation 4.0.

RE: Who's logged on?

You didn't mention which language you were writting in, I'll give it to you in C and if it's Delphi or VB you can get the example from my web site:


    char ipBuffer[32];
    unsigned long nSize = 100;
    BOOL check = false;
    //Gets the current user name, must include <winbase.h>
    check =  GetUserName(ipBuffer, &nSize);

    //ipBuffer will contain the name
