LOGON_USER & Anonymous Access

Is there a way to obtain user information (using LOGON_USER server
variables) when you have set up the security to Anonymous Access? I
have tried setting the security to both Anonymous + Window Integrated,
without any luck. I'm using IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003

Thanks in advance!

That ought to have worked, so long as:

1) you have a Windows domain

2) your IIS machine is part of that domain

3) your client machine is part of that domain

4) your client browser is IE

5) your client machine is actually logged on to the domain, i.e. the user
hasn't logged on locally...

Other scenarios may also work, but the above certainly should...

Hi Mark,
Thanks for your reply. I met all the criterias you listed above, but
it still doesn't work.
I tried using the same settings on IIS 5.0, and it seemed to have
worked. Doesn't seem to work with IIS 6.0.

Any idea why?

Thanks!

I have to confess I'm not a networking specialist... However, Win2k3s comes
with IIS 6 straight out of the box, so when you say it works with IIS 5,
that is presumably on a Windows 2000 server, right...? IIRC, Win2k3s fully
patched has much tighter security features than Win2k, so that might be
something to look at...

Can you please take the code below and copy it exactly into an aspx page,
place that in the app running on your IIS 6 box, run it, and tell me what
the various server variables say?

You won't get this working. If you anon and windows integrated enabled then
the browser will first issue an anon request for your page. As that request
works and there is no prompt for authentication you can't get their
credentials.

No.
I have tried setting the security to both Anonymous + Window
Integrated,
without any luck. I'm using IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003

That ought to have worked, so long as:

1) you have a Windows domain

2) your IIS machine is part of that domain

3) your client machine is part of that domain

4) your client browser is IE

5) your client machine is actually logged on to the domain, i.e. the user
hasn't logged on locally...

Other scenarios may also work, but the above certainly should...

Hi Mark,
Thanks for your reply. I met all the criterias you listed above, but
it still doesn't work.
I tried using the same settings on IIS 5.0, and it seemed to have
worked. Doesn't seem to work with IIS 6.0.

Any idea why?

Thanks!

I have to confess I'm not a networking specialist... However, Win2k3s comes

that is presumably on a Windows 2000 server, right...? IIRC, Win2k3s fully
patched has much tighter security features than Win2k, so that might be
something to look at...

Can you please take the code below and copy it exactly into an aspx page,
place that in the app running on your IIS 6 box, run it, and tell me what

Moreover, if I try this on my PC instead of our...
