"Obtaining A Remote Computers Logon ID" - 11/19/03 06:27 AM

Hi, There

Could somebody please help me out here?

I have been doing VB for about a year now, and am not entirely great at it, even thou I try, so was wounding if anyone would be able to help me.

What would like to do is make a program so that when you enter a computers IP or Name it shows you the Logon ID (username of person logged on).

Thanks allot for any help.

you'd have to learn the netbios protocol. Or perhaps the netbios API would give you that information. I have not researched in this area that extensively.

Here's a suite of utilities that show you what can be done:
