NT Gatekeeper: Identifying Logged-On Users

Users in my company frequently leave Windows NT Server 4.0 servers unattended with open logon sessions. How can I identify which users are interactively logged on to those servers?

You can use several methods to identify logged-on users:

  • Run progman.exe—The name of the user who's currently logged on will appear in the program's title bar.
  • Run the Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit whoami.exe utility from the command line.
  • Open a command prompt window and type
set

to display the user environment variables. The current user's logon name will appear in the USERNAME= line.

  • Press Ctrl+Alt+Del—The user's logon information will appear in the Windows NT Security dialog box.
  • Run winmsd.exe—The name of the user who's currently logged on will appear on the Network tab.
