Get Remote Computer Username
Posted on 2005-03-04
Sorry if this is a bit long winded...
I am writing a forum for a comprehensive school.
But a few pupils will probably try to abuse it.
I want to make it posible to ban certain pupils from posting.
But, it would take too long to go through and manualy add each pupil to the database every year when new pupils come up from primary school. But if they are allowed to signup then we will never know who is who because they wont use their school username.
Although we will be able to ban them, they could just sign up again. and we wouldnt be able to speak to them about it because we wouldn't know who it was.
So, I want to know if it is possible, and if so, how to get the username that they used to log into the computer. I.e. the windows username that they are using.
Thanks in advance
