I have Webmin installed, along with swat. Swat shows who is connected now, status and allows you to see and modify configuration.

Another program that shows current connections is smb4k. There may be more.

As for history, have a look at /var/log/samba/ There will be logs created for each ip address that connected. If you view the log, as root, then you should see details of the user in the log. This is a bit messy, but it works.
