Hi,
you can get the DNS of the user with Request.UserHostAddress
but i don't think that it is possible to get the comptername

i've done search on the EE before and there is no solution for this
also i've tried your search criteria, but the listed solution doesn't map to your situation
also, to have the full functionallity you better to read the rules and member agreement for EE and do what is needed

all solutions are available to anyone as far as I know, did you scroll down on the page?  anyway, unless this is an intranet application you can't get the computer name, if it is an intranet app, you have to use DNS, like mmarinov suggested.
