    1. There is no easy way. The options include, but are not limited to, configuring LimitLogin (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tec...litySpotlight/) or having a logon script update some sort of database or text file.

    2.There is no such thing "dedicated". Please explain what information do you want to extract and for what purposes.

    3. Please use "Misc" forum.

      Not sure whether you're looking for present or past logons, but you can use this little script called Who Domain for a list of users and the computer that they are currently logged in to. It is a modification of the PsloggedOn script from SysInternals.com

          there are more topics about this.
          You can use bginfo on the clients or use a loginscript to redirect the userid and computername to a file.

              I don't quite understand...
              The users aren't using always the same computer? They are roaming (meaning they use different computers in different occasions)?
              My users are static (they always use the same station) and to solve this problem I wrote in the Description files of every computer the username of the employee that logs into it.
              Like Guy said, it's not quite clear what you mean by your second question... Same for the third... You need a secure way to transfer files? Are you already using an IIS server?

                  So, if I understand right, you need a way to transfer files (or et people upload files to you) in a secure way.
                  If this is the case, I suggest you get yourself an old PC, install any Linux you want on it and make it an FTP server, only through SCP (secure copy).
                  The same (with pros and cons) can be achieved by installing Cygwin on an Windows machine.

                    Abdalla,
                    You have asked this same question TWICE in two separate forums, two days apart. Didn't you read the responses for the first one?

                    I have reported the threads for merging. Please read the forum rules and stick to one set of posts per topic!
