Re^2: Obtaining Windows username from an intranet ActiveState Perl script
in thread Obtaining Windows username from an intranet ActiveState Perl script
Its like any other authentication scheme, the user supplies the username and a password. Or does Apache2::AuthenNTLM somehow read the mind of the person on the other end of the network and determine their window's username? Not even windows can get a person username until they type it in to the login screen. Maybe what you are looking for is a single sign on solution. If so why didn't ask about that? I have used products from Quest http://www.quest.com/identity-management/ that handle Apache authentication with Window credentials but its not free or opensource.
