There is no such thing as "currently logged  on users" as SharePoint doesn't
maintain session info of this type.

Is Sharepoint ver2 the sharepoint that is imbedded in FrontPage 2002?

Answer #3    Answered By: Adya Deshmane     Answered On: Nov 24

SharePoint could refer to any of four server products - Windows SharePoint
Services (WSS) is part of Windows Server 2003, SharePoint Portal Server 2003
(SPS2003) is a standalone server in the Office 2003 family built on WSS. These
match up with Office 2003 clients for the best integration.

SharePoint Team Services (STS) is the predecessor to Windows SharePoint
Services, and SPS 2001 match up with Office XP as the best client integration.

The answer on WSS and SPS2003 is that there is no such list, as they do not use
or store that type of state information. I'm not as familiar with STS and
SPS2001, it may be possible with those.

You can however set up instant messenger if you want to "see" who is
online in your company... Exchange supports that...The only other
program that "snoops the dupes" is RDP I
believe... If you have your reports configured for server 03', I also
believe it spits out a usage report every now and then to see activity
and email activity etc... Not sure if there is a sharepoint activity
report there.. I don't believe so since it's just a website and like he
said, there ain't no logged  in peeps so to speak.

I realize that SharePoint has gone through a metamorphasis. My problem is
that I have the original version of SharePoint Team Services which is
imbedded in the Microsoft FrontPage edition 2002. It must be hosted on a
Windows 2000 Server which mine is, with the extentions activated which mine
is. And there is very little specific reference material that I have been
able to find on this product version. So there is much confusion and all
that applies to Windows SErver 2003 and the FrontPage 2003 may not directly
translate back to the 2002 version.
I am looking for info specifically for the version that I own.
Does anyone have a suggestion for specific reference material for my
situation. I am with a nonprofit professional organization and this is the
version that I have to work with. It is really very powerful and my
hosting isa bargain if I can just get a basic root site up and running as
there is no limit on the number of subwebs that can be created with no
extra costs incurred beyond hosting which I already have in place. No
extra licenses etc. I have been flapping around this project since last
This group seems to be for Web site design geeks and I don't really fit
that bill. I have sorting out quite a bit but....
Thanks for any help or insight that anyone of you learned folks can offer
this newbie. If a template could be disigned for our type of situation
someone could make some money selling this format to small professional
groups in the alternative healthcare arena.

Then my question would be, exactly what is the state service used for
with sps?
What kind of state information is being stored in sql server? I had
assumed that it was session-based data (ie, related to a specific user
session). I guess there is really no reason for sps2003 to store such
data but actually this is a major requirement we have (ie, identifying
active user sessions). We have built a non-sps workaround but that seems
ridiculous when it is info that is readily available to sharepoint in
the very same browser headers as the usual asp.net information).

Answer #7    Answered By: Marcus Davis     Answered On: Nov 24

The only state informartion used is within individual HTML forms for submission
- there is no user state stored for sessions. The authentication methods
supported by SPS (Basic and NTLM) contain all the user info needed and are sent
with every request, so from the SPS point of view an overall session state is
redundant and could cause scaling, load-balancing, and .NET security problems.

Finally found a copy of Microsoft FrontPage Version 2002 INSIDE OUT and your
link was one that I had not found in my many searches of the Microsoft
Library so I really appreciate your response. And it is great to realize
that I am working with Sharpoint Team Services version 1.0 which most
serious developers are now beyond.
The original Dinosaur. This could be very wonderful or difficult time will
tell! Hope you can get some insightful responses to your posting.

Thanks Bryan for you review of the history and progress for the development
of the Sharepoint programs. I finally get it where my version sits.
