	Well, if you don't have access to the machine anymore, then odds 
are you would be considered to be hacking into the machine and 
violating any of a number of different laws by "stealing" the user 
list.  You should seriously consider industrial espionage and theft 
laws, and the potential consequences before, proceeding down this 

	That said, you're limited to listing the users via the web 
interface, or sending the "who" command to the administrative 
interface which is available to all subscribers (unless that feature 
was disabled).  If you have a lot of users and you use the web 
interface, then you will be limited to the number of users you can 
see per page.

	There are no other export options that are available.
