Command line option to check if another user is connected to the system?

Perhaps the net session command?


I need to find out if sharing network is enabled on windows in general

To view what is shared by a specific computer

For example

C:\> net view \\BUBBA
Shared resources at \\BUBBA

bubba Miniserver

Share name  Type  Used as  Comment

home        Disk           Home Directories
storage     Disk           Common storage
The command completed successfully.

I guess it would work if someone was connected at the time, but what if no one is connected? I need to find out if sharing network is enabled on windows in general. – tikend Mar 8 '13 at 12:13
