I need to get the user name AUTOMATICALLY from user's logging into an Intranet.
Posted on 2006-06-29
I am using ASP.NET VB and trying to get user information when they enter my Intranet.
Since the user is already a valid user on the network, I don't want to prompt the user again to enter their info. On an older intranet I had written, I simply loaded a VB6 ActiveX control on the user's machine, then I could check whatever I needed to.
With ASP.NET, I was hoping to be able to do something similar. I can get the Active Directory user's info ON MY DEVELOPMENT machine, but when deployed to the server, this doesn't work. I need a way to get this info WITHOUT forcing the user to enter anything. If I turn OFF Anonymous access, the user gets prompted for name and password, I do NOT want this to happen.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
