I would like to find out a list of user accounts on a remote Windows PC. I would like to do this from the windows command prompt. Is this possible and if so how ?

Original Can we get available Users under windows through one computer for other computer and both are in LAN. i.e. let say PC1 and PC2 are in LAN. I want to know users available on PC2 through PC1 using command prompt.

  • Um........what?

PsExec from the Sysinternals suite (which you can download from microsoft.com) will let you run commands on a remote pc; in this case, net user.
