pts/0, pts/1 devices ??


when I type who I can see tty1, tty2, ... terminals, pts/0, and :0

tty1 to ttyn are my consoles
I think :0 is GUI
And what are pts/0, pts/1, ....
Are these remote users logged in by telnet ?

How do I see users logged in by telnet, or ssh, or else ?

Those are pseudo-terminals, which are usually associated with remote (telnet or ssh) users.

ps -ef
will show you what all of your processes are, then you can use grep to filter the ones you want to see like
ps -ef | grep "ssh"
