What are the required rights to check the logged on users?

I am evaluating the network scanner, I cannot seem to get the logged on users information.

Thanks.

Most likely you would need to be a domain admin to look up logged on users.

Our Network Scanner uses three different methods, whichever succeeds:
  1. Windows API call NetWkstaUserEnum()
  2. NetBIOS request and response analysis
  3. WMI query "SELECT UserName FROM Win32_ComputerSystem"

If all that fails, you can try the predefined script called "User logon time" as shown below. It is available under Remote Scripting:
