ASP Classic and Basic Authentication

I have an ASP Classic web site that is running on an IIS that is setup for Basic Authentication with anonymous access disabled.  I also have a login script that requires the user to type in a username and then validates it across active directory for their password, once validated it then creates several cookies to be used throughout the site.

Right now when you navigate to the site for the first time, you have to login to the windows authentication prompt, then login again at my login page.  Is there a way to capture the basic authentication username and password and have it pass to the login I already have?

I have included some of the code that I am using for the login validation page.
'**************************
'Active Directory CheckSum
'**************************	
On Error Resume Next	
if (not strUserName= "") then
		
	strADsPath = "WinNT://" & strADsPath
	Dim oADsObject  
	Dim tempstr
	tempstr = strDomain & "\" & strUserName
	
	Set oADsObject = GetObject(strADsPath)
	
	Dim strADsNamespace
	Dim oADsNamespace
	strADsNamespace = left(strADsPath, instr(strADsPath, ":"))
	set oADsNamespace = GetObject(strADsNamespace)
	Set oADsObject = oADsNamespace.OpenDSObject(strADsPath, tempstr, strPassword, 0)
	
	if not (Err.number = 0) then				
		Response.redirect"login.asp?Message=Please provide a correct login name<br>or system password for the " & strDomain & " domain!<br>"
		'response.write err.description & "<p>"
		if err.number = -2147022987 then ' for account logout
			Response.write "<strong>Your account has been logged out!</strong>"
		end if
		
	else				
		Dim strProj, Objrs
		Set Objrs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
		Call OPEN_DB
		If AreYouATech = 1 Then
			strProj = "SELECT * FROM tblTechnician Where username = '" & StrUserName & "'"
		Else
			strProj = "SELECT * FROM tblNonTechnician WHERE ClientEmplID = " & StrUserName
		End If
		Set Objrs = MyConn.Execute(strProj)
		
		If NOT Objrs.EOF Then
			If AreYouATech = 1 Then
				'Cookies Go Here
			Else
				Dim RSClient, SQLClient
				Set RSClient = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
				Call OPEN_DB
				SQLClient = "SELECT * FROM tblClient WHERE ClientEmplID = " & StrUserName
				Set RSClient = MyConn.Execute(SQLClient)
				
				'Cookies Go Here
			End If
		Else
			Set Objrs = Nothing
			Set ObjConn = Nothing
			Response.redirect"login.asp?Message=Invalid UserName! Please try again"
		End If
	End If
End If

Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER") will pick up the username for the user when you are using Basic Authentication

see the following website

Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")

You could also try using

Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER") Returns the raw authenticated user name

Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_PASSWORD") Returns the value entered in the client's authentication dialog
