I think he only wants to view them not config them =)

You can see whose logged on your pc from your security logs

Start > Program's >Administrative tools > eventviewer

or right click my computer, select manage
then expand Event viewer and go to Security log

Use the previous post's link to config the output from those logs.

You may use [query session]syntax which displays information about
sessions on a terminal server.

If it not be the case then follow replies from other posters.

sessions on a terminal server.

"query user" seems to be what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, it
doesn't work on my system. When I issued the command "query user"
in a command window, I got an error message saying query is not
recognized as an internal or external command, even though other
termianl services commands such as msg and shadow, etc., worked.

Does this command only exist in XP sp1 or sp2? I use the original
XP pro, not sp1 nor sp2.
