I have a form to be filled by users who use Win 2000 Pro clients logged into NT domain and when submitted to be sent by email.

What I need to be included when a form is submitted to get:
1. Machine name or IP address.
2. User Name.

So, how to now the Machine name and user name of a client?

Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")

these two server variables are what you want

to use LOGON_USER the user must have logged on to your site using challenge response/basic, see IIS settings for that web site/virtual directory, if not there is no way to get their username.

try REMOTE_HOST insead of _ADDR

I have many virtual directories.
Which one should I check..

Please notice that I don't have that much experience in IIS, so could you please be more detailed.

Thanks

you need to go to the virtual di in question (where the scripts are) then go to security and enable basic or challenge response

Just something extra - to seperate the domain and username:

Logon = Request.ServerVariables("Logon_User")

Position = InStr(1, Logon, "\")
Length = Len(Logon)
Domain = Left(Logon, Position - 1)

Position = InStr(1, Logon, "\")
Length = Len(Logon)
Username = Right(Logon, Length - Position)

Hope you can use it.
