    Find a utility whcih displays the computer name/ IP Address on the desktop. That way when someone calls you, you ask them to read that info to you.
    TIA

        What i usually do is right click "My Computer" and select manage then open up the shared folders tree and double click on sessions. there i can see usernames matched to either netbios names or ip addresses, then there is always pstools with psloggedon or the nbtstat command from a dos prompt

        hope this is what your after

          What I use is a logon and logoff script that allows me to see what computer someone is/has been logged onto and also centralizes any logon/logoff tracking.

          Logon Script:

          echo logon, %computername%, %username%, %date%, %time% >> \\servername\shareddrive\%username%.log

          Logoff Script:

          echo logoff, %computername%, %username%, %date%, %time% >> \\servername\shareddrive\%username%.log

          Then, if someone calls, I can just go to that directory on the network, browse to that user's name, and see what computer they are logged into.
          Thank you,

          Marc

              I have only been running it for a little over a week and the biggest is 2k. And that one is because they log on and off multiple times a day (work from home) I would imagine if I were worried about the size getting too big, I could just move them and they would recreate themselves.

                Hi,

                It depends on the number of logins as for each login attempt it will create an entry. Although it's just a simple text entry so it's not big but subjected to the numbers of users it may significantly increase.
