How would I obtain the "LOGON_USER" when there is no web site logon but just anonymous. Since my situation is an intranet and users log on to the domain, wouldn't I be able to grab the "LOGON_USER" var?
thank you.

You could use IIS-based authentication to authenticate users with their Windows user IDs and passwords.  To do so, all you need to do is change permissions on foxweb.dll and foxweb.exe, so that the anonymous IIS users (IUSR_<ServerName> and IWAM_<ServerName>) do not have read access.  Once the user logs in, you can retrieve their userid and password with Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_USER") and Request.ServerVariables("AUTH_PASSWORD").

I'm writing an Intranet application, running on W2K and WXPP PC's integrated in a W2K domain.    The IIS 5 allows an anonymous access.
The version of foxweb is 2.5
I would like my foxweb application to use the Windows logon user name to authenticate the user, instead of the auth method.
I tried different server variables like logon_user, but without success.
I also tried to disable the anonymous access and force the integrated authentication on the IIS, but then the user gets an authentication popup in IE when he tries to access the intranet website.
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance
