How to get client user name

P: 271
I need to get the user name of the client machine from where the site is accessed. Is there any way to do this without using any ActiveX components.

Thanks & Regards

hi Dormilich,
My application is an intranet application in which i need to get the client machines username to generate menus based on the access level he is having. Here i can get the access level to this user by cross mapping this user name with a roles table. so is there any way to get the user name.

If it's an intranet application and you have more control, why not use ActiveX or an alternative?

Even better, use a server-side language with user/admin login, to create different menus.
