If you mean how many people are logged in to a domain server, the command
echo %username%
is similar to the who command in Unix.

A full version of the who command for windows comes with vshell software. I just heard about it so it's not a recommendation.

Hey thanks for the reply
but i think that i didnt get an answer to my question. let me specify that i want to know that how many users are logged in and doing some activities on the server(i.e they are active). The users are present at different locations in the network and try to access the server from there respective places. The connection to the server passes through the Cisco 6500 Series Switch and also there is a Cisco 4700 Series Application Control Engine (ACE) which serves the purpose of load balancing. There is a Cisco Firewall(FWSM) also present to restrict the unwanted access. So all the connections pass through these devices.
Is there any method to know that how many connections are present at a given instant of time through any of the above devices(Fwsm, Switch, ACE). Is there any software to do so .
or any other physical device.

The who command would give you the user's name & IP address but if that isn't complete enough for you, look at process explorer & other programs from the sysinternals suite by MS. It's the closest thing that MS has to the who & lsof commands, without buying 3rd party software.
