JSI Tip 3977. NetUsers freeware displays active/historical list of users logged on to a remote computer

Marty List brings us NetUsers.

The readme contains:

Network Users \[Version 1.21\]

Displays a list of users logged on to a specified Windows system.

The syntax of this command is:

NetUsers \[\\computername \\...\] \[/history\] \[/local\] \[/verbose\]

 \\computername Allows you to query remote systems. Multiple computers
                can be specified, each separated by a space.
 /history|/h    Displays the user accounts that have logged on in the past. If
                history is omitted, currently logged on users are displayed.
 /local|/l      Includes local user accounts in the output, by default they
                are skipped. In a domain these are usually service accounts.
 /verbose|/v    Reports non-fatal problems as errors (such as deleted accounts)

 An argument of /? or -? displays this syntax and returns 1.
 A successful completion will return 0.
