We are using VS 2005. I need to get user who have logged on to the Intranet site I am using
System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal p = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal as System.Security.Principal.WindowsPrincipal;
this.GblUserID = p.Identity.Name;

this returns me the results only on my development local machine. when I moved the code to staging server It won't return any results.

Can some one please help me asap. in my web.config I have
<authentication mode="Windows"/>
    <identity impersonate = "true" />
thanks

Hi,

To the best of my knowledge, "Windows" authentication mode does not mean NTLM, it means that authentication will happen at the IIS level.

check this..

NTLM
FUSION-PUNE\validusername
True
True
False

----
NTLM
FUSION-PUNE\validusername
True
True
False

The result when "Anonymous Access" set in IIS.

NTLM
FTPUNE0025\IUSR_FTPUNE0025
False
False**********
False

----
NTLM
FTPUNE0025\IUSR_FTPUNE0025
False
True****
False
