see ipc.c:

in the NetWkstaUserLogon and / or NetWkstaGetInfo functions, decrease the
levels of the DEBUG statements, or add your own.

ur...  except using DCE/RPC in the nt domain version and therefore with nt
workstations only, you don't _have_ the concept of successful or
unsuccessful "logins"!  you certainly don't have the concept of a
"logout":  you can only tell a Win95 client its profile details

through locking.c, which has a higher order function table.  one of the
things that can be done is to enumerate through the open files and open
sessions, regardless of whether you are doing FAST_SHARE_MODES
(locking_shm.c) or the old slow file-based share modes (locking_slow.c)

smbstatus commands in smbclient.
