  Do you have WINS (I think Samba can do that)?

  When a Windows box logs onto the network, it registers with
NetBIOS/WINS both the machine name and the user name, so that
the Windows Messenger service can be used to send messages to
specific machines or all machines logged in as a specific
user.  A WINS server will collect these into a database that
you can browse, including by IP address.

Subject: Remote windows "finger"


Is there any way to determine who is logged into a win9x box 
(Win98, 2000,
XP) from a remote system preferably Linux.

I have a list of IP addresses and I need to, if possible, 
find out who is
logged into those systems so I can send them email from a 
redhat system.
This is all behind the corporate firewall

Thanks

Troy
