Can I avoid my Forms Authentication Page?

On my company's external website, we have a Forms Authentication page that must be completed by all website users.

Company employees often need to use the site from their desktop machine and they are logged into our network.

Is there any way to detect that the browser is running on machine that is logged into our own network and use that information to avoid the Forms Authentication page?

    I do not believe this can be done.

    The links from jagssidurala do not provide any insight. Rather they point to how to use Active Directory in conjunction with Forms Authentication. This is good info, but not relevant to the question.

    Please see my previous comment.

    For security reasons, the information required from the client machine is not available.
