PCName from users who get on site

Hi,

Is it possible with javascript to retrieve somebody's Computername when he
connects to a webserver? (So the webserver receives the computername of the
client).

If this is possible, any help?

Thanks

No.

Why do you need my Computername when I connect to your website?

And, what if I don't *have* a Computername?

Well, you won't actually go to this site. :)
It's for an internal website and I want to know who came to the site,
however, since we use dhcp & there are different locations, I can't really
use something like an IP adress table...

So I'm looking for other ways to find out who gets on our internal website.

Please Log In:
<form name="login" action="login.p hp"
onsubmit="retur n validate(this.f orm)">
<input type="text" name="userName" >
<input type="password" name="userPassw ord">
<input type="submit" value="Sign In">
</form>

And have the validate function make sure neither input is blank before
submission.

Why make it harder than it is?

different.

Usually in intranet / VPN authentificatio n is handled separately and
not a preoccupation of HTTP server (it gets this info from IIS threads
and such). But if you want to reproduce WWW in your intranet then use
cookies set on the initial authentificatio n.

I take it that the company isn't concerned about security with this
site, then?
