Getting user's NT User Group Name

Hi,

I'm trying to retrieve the NT user group that the user running my application belongs to. I've been retrieving the domain name and user name using the code below and I was wondering is there some similar way of getting the user's NT user group:

//Get the domain of the current user
string domainname = System.Environment.UserDomainName;

//Get the user name
string username = System.Environment.UserName;

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

You can check the user against known Windows group names by using
WindowsPrincipal's IsInRole method. Retrieving unknown group names
(which sounds like the case here) may pose more of a problem for you. If
you're on a Win2K network you may have access to Active Directory
services, and you could then take advantage of the functionality offered
by the System.Directory namespace. Without Active Directory I believe
your answer becomes more elusive (maybe others can offer potential
solutions in this case).
