userName = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name

when the app is running and the user has been authenicated
and then right clicks a link to open in a new tab
recieves an object not set to a references error
hitting in the global.asax page upon
userName = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name

it has to be a server setting or iis setting as this was never an issue on the 2003 box it was moved from
any thoughts
the server is set to windows authentication
and anonymous is disabled
and forms is enabled
any thoughts

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

every forms with site Ive setup has to have anonymous enabled to hit the login page. Forms and basic don't get along and iis will complain when you enable both of them.
