Try the below code
string networklogon = null;
Array arrnetworklogon = null;
string loginname = null;

//get network user data
networklogon = Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER");
arrnetworklogon = Strings.Split(networklogon, "\\");
loginname = arrnetworklogon(Information.UBound(arrnetworklogon));

Open in new window

As long as the asp.net site is running windows authentication user.identity.name has always worked for me. This would return the username in the form of Domain\User

Try this:

Inside the webpage:

Validate(HttpContext.Current);


In your other class (if you have one):

public void Validate(HttpContext currentContext)
{
   string name = currentContext.Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name;
   string isAuth = currentContext.Request.IsAuthenticated;
}
