    Q) In windows XP i noticed you can link to another computer on the network through Computer manager in administrator Tools. Does anyone know what command you can use the CMD window to find out who is remotely connected to your PC?:biggrin

    Hmmm :hhhmmm

    I know you can see what shares are open in computer management and who is connected and that is about it.

    Just switch a firewall on then zero people are connected. :biggrin

    EDIT: netstat -a ??

    AD i think there's a option to allow maximum users to share folders under the sharing option.

    The problem we have got is someone playing a joke but going too far, yes we can put up the firewall but need to track them first and find out who is the prankster8)

    Well from i can see there's no option to change the firewall in WinXP because all the PC's are RIS built and sit on a AD server8)

    You would of thought so! But no message appears. Instead the CD/DVDrom ejects this happens almost every 2 - 3 minutes. Now the first time is strange but after 16th time the joke gets a bit thin!:dry

    If the user connecting has domain admin rights then there will be no prompt for authentication. Windows firewall *should* block it though.

    Is someone connecting to your PC for a laugh? :biggrin

    i would stop the remote assistance service on the workstation, and show the user how to manually start it, if and when required

    If you type netstat -a at the command line that might tell you who is connecting.

    Like I said the user needs admin rights to do this so check who has the required permissions in AD. 8)

    Look for one of the admins or someone that has the admin password.
