Anyone know if there are any commands that list the current users connected ad-hoc?

I have my laptop set up ad-hoc, and my zaurus connects to my laptop. They both ping eachother fine, but I was wondering if there was any way I could actually see a list of connections.
I saw this thread and would second it. I am in what sounds like the same boat. I have set up the ad-hoc connection and can ping both ways, but I don't know what to do next. The PC runs XP Home, but does not see anything under Network Places. I'm sure it is a fairly simple issue, because the connection IS working. Does anyone know how to find out if Samba is available on the 6k's by default? If so how does one activate it?
ifconfig on the zaurus will show you the current network interfaces and their config.

ipconfig /all does the same on xp.

If you want to see the zaurus in Network Places (or whatever MS is calling it this version) then you will need to start samba on the Z. Currently samba is only started automatically when you connect the Z to pc via usb cable.

Odd that sharp should decide to only allow samba over usb and not to recognise usb as a network in qtopia by default.

Samba can be started via
/etc/rc.d/init.d/samba start
(may be qtsamba - sorry don't have the Z handy to check) You could add that to one of the network up scripts to have it done automatically
