I would like to display the hostname (or computername) and username (or logonID) on our Intranet support page. Can some one tell me where I can download the samples or post the code here?
 
Thanks.

This code will list what you want but you have to have logging turned on in your IIS server.  Also you have to have reverse lookup enable in you DNS to get the host name or it will just give you the IP address.

<%
Response.Write Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER ") & "  " & Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST ")
%>

This code will list all of the possible items that you can request from Server Variables.

<%
For each item in Request.ServerVariables
     Response.Write "<li>" & item & " = " & Request.ServerVariables(item)
next
%>

Anonymous should not be checked and NT Challenge should be in order to get auth_user value
