Python, Win2000 serv and missing LOGON_USER variable :(

JZ
I am using Webware installed on Windows2000 server and I found I
could not find all server variable like PHP could. E.g. Windows2000
server has specific variable LOGON_USER which is set for every
logged person. PHP can easy get to this using $_SERVER['LOGON_USER'].
I want to do the same with Webware but I do not know how...

Only small sets of variables are available for request()._envi ron
variable which I got with the following code (for Webware):

for k in self.request(). _environ:
self.write(k,'= >',self.request ()._environ[k],'<br />')

Is it posible to get that server variable with Python??? That variable
is available only with Windows2000 server platform.

LOGON_USER only exists when you actually use basic authentication. Are you
doing that? It isn't trivial with Webware. Remember that IIS isn't
serving from your applet directory -- Webware is. A .htaccess file won't
do what you think it will.

Have you looked over UserKit or WebKit\SecurePa ge.py to see the recommended
methods of handling user validation through the applets?

Webkit/Examples/SecurePage.py deals only with manual authentication.
But I want to login _only once_, during logging to ma workstation. So
that example does not help.

The solution for my problem is: win32api.GetUse r()

OK, but are you aware that this will only tell you the name of the user
that happens to own the Webware process? It isn't the user running the
browser, and it isn't even necessarily the user currently logged in.

I'm trying to get the NT login id of a user on a web page without making the user type it into a login box. I'm using the LOGON_USER server variable.

If the page is set to Basic Security, the NT login popup box comes up, even though the user is already logged into the network, and HAS access to this page. Moreover, if I try this on my PC instead of our...
