Hi We use an application called lan ranger and are looking to move away from this can anybody recommend an application that will show me all the users and computers currently logged on?
There are also some login scripts on the forum as well that will show this.
I never got them working though which is a shame.
One of them records logins/logoffs to a mysql database and has a web browser frontend.
Impero Though that's maybe a bit more than you're after
How does it work? Does it use login scripts?
EDIT: Ahh it uses an agent. Bit overkill just to track logins. Its probably better to go with some classroom management software like ABTutor or Impero

Look through my previous posts I use login scripts at Logon / Logoff and it includes Username, Time & Date, Computer Name etc.
It's just a basic batch file but it does the job - below is what I have in my batch file.
echo IT Services Logon Script
net use L: \\10.10.1.64\data\logs /U:username password
echo **User Logon** UserName: "%USERNAME%" ComputerName: %COMPUTERNAME% UserDomain: %USERDOMAIN% UserProfile: %USERPROFILE% System Time: %TIME% **Mapped Home Drive** %homedrive% System Date: %DATE% Currently Attached Server: %LOGONSERVER% >>L:\Logon.txt
echo Log file written - Task Complete!
net use L: /del /yes
The output is written to a text file on a different server, it's all one individual lines of text for each user and it can be exported to CSV very easily, it's easy to find out where a user logged on and where they logged on and what time and date.

Userlock is fantastic, I'm really glad we've got it. Not just for the user tracking but for concurrency limiting and very fine grain controls which can set when someone is allowed to log on.
Heres the only things i needed to change in the login script , i think IRC the username and password below is for the MYSQL database . The software also can tell if its a teacher or student logged on , it doesnt use the AD members groups but the description field. So you need to add either staff or pupils to the description field on each user.
' Configuration for HTTP - change these
strHTTPURL = "http://www.domain.com/logintracker/update.php"
strHTTPUsername = "username"
strHTTPPassword = "password"
' User descriptions. Change to suit your environment
staff = "Staff ,staff"
student = "Pupils,pupils,year6"
logoff script is also the same thing . Change address and username and password
I had it up and running very quick !
*Edit* Could be wrong what the username and password is for .. Could be for the HTACCESS used to protect it !

We have used AB Tutor here for about 3 years now and have been very happy with it and its features, it is also cheap if you only want a few users to have access to it
I use this cmd program call NetUsers.exe
I find who is currently logged into a computer and the last time they logged in.
