"who" not giving the expected result

I have a few computers networked through NFS/NIS and I want some HTML to react from the "server" according to which users are logged in from the "clients" probably using Javascript
and / or CGI. How can I best achieve that?

I've tried the "who" command (-a -q -s -u -m) but none of these commands lists the users
logged in from the clients, they only list the user on the "server". Do I have an NFS/NIS problem?

Any hint most welcome.

the 'who' command only lists users wich have are logged in via a shell (or ssh client / putty client etc.), not the users who mapped a NFS drive. so much for the hint why it's not working. sorry to say I don't know how to check for active NFS connections...
