If you are trying to get the NT LOGIN of the user ..
I Guess u cant get that in the in STATIC HTML Pages. U need to have ASP page for that.

 <%Request.Servervariables("AUTH_NAME")%>

use this -=> And get the NT User login. But this Cant be helpful in every client.  There are Limitations. infact Many.

No. It's not possible with ANY client side scripting. And it hardly ever works with server side scripting either.

They're not YOUR users. They're coming in as the default internet user -- not an actual account. Unless they have to actually go through an NT logon, they're not your user.

WHAT NT login? I'm not logging in. I'm coming from a web page.

That's why it's not reliable.

The Problem is:

after I have logged me on the WinNT,WIN2000 (I have to give my Login-Name and my password) I will start the IE with my html-page. Then I will se the Login-Name in the html-page.

Is it not possible to get the Login-Name from the %USER% environmentvariable?

Or can I save (via a batch-program) the Login-Name in a text-file and then read in the html-page?

Javascript cannot do it.

I uploaded an activex object that does exactly that. As a user you must allow the activex component though.
I uploaded it to:
http://www.casema.net/~cjfamily/loginid.cab

and you use with the following code:

<OBJECT ID="oLoginID"
CLASSID="CLSID:E7504828-3EBB-11D3-A99B-0000836953AF"
CODEBASE="LoginID.CAB#version=1,0,0,0">
</OBJECT>

<script language="vbscript">
     msgbox oLoginID.LoginID
</script>

regards,
CJ

olcay -> When u are working on the Intranet u can Ofcourse Fetch the -> NT User Login.

BUT This will definately not work.. when it comes to the internet. U get the nt Login.. as long as the pages are in the inetpub/wwwroot/whatever... But once they are on the web. Ur Pages Cant fetch the Client NT Login. As U Wouldnt be Treating them.. as Users Logged in to Ur System. Its not POSSIBLE .

As Long as U are limited to Intranet -+ U Could Exercise.. But NEver Possible in the other form.

tanx all.

>>CS J

Thanx very much.

How can I assign the Login-name from the object to a label?

Is it possible to get the source-code from your loginid-ActiveX ?

Regards

It's not made by me, and if it were. Code won't be given for true applications I made :-)

I think you'll have to ask a new question to get that answered!
