Finding User Information on a Host


Finding User Information on a Host

After performing a successful Host Lookup, you can query that host for information about specific users.

  This function requires an enabled Finger daemon (Fingerd) on the host.

To Finger a host:

  1. On the File menu, click Finger.
  2. In the User box, type the valid user name of the person about whom you want information. To obtain a list of all users currently logged onto the host, leave the User box blank.
  3. Click OK.

If the user name is valid, Finger displays information about that particular user.
