    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?

    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,

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

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