Muthuselvan, it sounds like you're into cracking, which is not what this board is about, should this be the case, please take your issue elsewhere.

Should you be searching, the correct area you're looking for starts with "social engeneering"

No intrusion - Get the details


One of the simplest ways is to execute a rsh command from a machine in the network on the remote machine.

#rsh host "ls /home"

This will display all the user home directories having account on that machine.
