Identifying Active Directory User


New Member

We've got a simple web app on our intranet which I'd like to be contextual in terms of the logged-in user (which will always be via our corporate Active Directory).

As the web page will be on a Linux server by choice, how do I obtain the Active Domain user name (which I'll then use to display some contextual data for the user?

Doing it on the client in, say, a macro is fine obviously but what's the simplest way to do this from the server-side code?

Can't use ActiveX and doing full blown Single Sign On is way OTT for this I feel.

Hope I've made sense - thanks in advance.

EDIT: Decided to go down the SSO route in the end having researched online re the complexity and feasibility - seems quite do-able...
