I am trying to see under what name I am connected to my 2003 server.

Where in the 2003 Server can I look to see who is connected to the server?
I want to know how they got there - what logon they used.

Thanks,

Tom

What if you don't have Terminal Server running on your machine?

I am just doing a VPN connection to my network through my firewall or via
Windows Explorer either by Mapping or by entering \\ComputerName\share.

Thanks,

I have about 35 entries in my Administrative Tools Menu but I don't have
routing and remote access mmc. Where do I get that?

Thanks,

I tried that with:

Net Session \\mars153

I get the following message:

A session does not exist with that computer name.

This is a valid computer on our network.

Thanks,

Tom

I might try that but then isn't that a security problem?

Thanks,

The problem is I am not using Microsoft VPN Server. I am using the VPN from
my Firewall.
