Your question is unclear, do you need t ofind out all users currently logged on the server ? If yes, "who" command will give you this, you can also use "finger", it will report like :
Login Name Tty Idle Login Time Where
root root pts/0 - Wed 03:25

The IP address that you see from finger or who is the IP of logged user.
Use the "last" command to see users previously logged or still logged in.
You can retrieve the information about users like :
example : you run "finger" and you see user "ssh" logged in, then you can "grep ssh /etc/passwd" and you should see :
sshd:x:74:74:Privilege-separated SSH:/var/empty/sshd:/sbin/nologin
- the part "Privilege-separated SSH" is comment, and usually this is additional information about certain user.
