If you go to the directory of your Localhost and then watch the permissions, you'll see that there is one group called EVERYONE, if this group has full access then LOGON_USER does not know who logged on and therefor is empty, if you have NT logons then remove the group EVERYONE (ALL USERS)
then your LOGON_USER will contain the NT user logged on.

Hope this helps you

Yeah,it worked for me when i deleted the everyone group from the local host.but there is one problem when i used netscape browser it was not able to extract the login user.
I don't know why it works fine with IE

If you find the solution pls mail me.

Hmm... it's server sided, so NS should even know what's happening, have you forgotten to close a table or cell somewhere ? the closing of tags is very important in NS

I think you should check your input tag. May be there is property NN doesn't support.

<input type="text" name="test" value="<%=......%>">
