Show or List Which Users Are Logged into a Cisco Router

Posted June 18, 2006 by Quinn McHenry in Cisco router

Wide area networks are often very wide, and installing or troubleshooting remote routers often requires fingers on keyboards in more than one physical location. Getting a listing of the users logged into a router is simple, which makes it easier to send that user a message (as many remote locations have no cell phone signal).


To list the users logged into a router, issue this command:

show users

The output will show something like the following:


Line User Host(s) Idle Location
* 0 con 0 00:00:00
66 vty 0 qmchenry idle 00:13:49 trx3845a

The line starting with the asterisk is the session from which you run the command.
