How do I see active connections in Windows XP Home Edition........ I've enabled File Sharing on one of my folder and I want to see who is accessing my folder over LAN.

best thing i can think of would be the netstat command in a dos prompt
but this would just tell you all connections on your computer not neccissairly to that folder.

sysinternals has a couple programs that you could use but they only do partially what you want, check out psfile and tcpview

the best way is to go here Start > CP > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

then click on shared folders > sessions, it'll show the computer accessing your folder
