How to get windows user ID in C# web application?
To clarify, I am talking about login ID that user uses to login to his working machine. (he/she has to press Ctrl-Alt-Del and enter login and password to start working)

I was looking around and  one of the suggestion was to use:  System.Environment.UserName;
But, this gives (by my opinion) account name under which the application is logged to the server that hosts application. In my case I get "ASPNET" and that is not my windows ID.

I assume that for this I will have to connect to Active Directory. How can I do that and how to query Active Directory. Thanks.

You'll need to disable anonymous access on the website.

Once you've got Anony turned off, you can see who the authenticated user:  Page.User.Identity.Name

Hi,

Or You could use:

Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name.ToString 'will give you the logged on windows/domain account in DOMAIN\username format as string
Request.LogonUserIdentity.User.ToString 'will give you the domain SID of the logged on user as a string
