yes I can retrieve the computer signin username if the file exist on my computer, but if I put this code on another server it will only retrieve the server username if logged in.  I want to to be able to retrieve the username on the client side of anyone computer to display on a webpage, this is for intranet use.

Response.Write("The USERname environment variable is : " & Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("USERNAME"))
