where are cookies written?

    I need to get the computer name that the user's browser is on (intranet app
    here). We don't want Netbios turned on. So, when the user logs in, the
    network engineers have a file written onto the user's machine. Then, my .NET
    app is going to read from that text file -- ON THE USER'S MACHINE. How to
    do it... I'm thinking the only way is: Have the text file written to the
    place that .NET cookies are written to. Then I'll be able to access it like
    reading a cookie.

    Does this sound like a good idea? If so, I assume the location only
    c:\documents and settings\chuckie\cookies
    where chuckie is the name of the user?

  2. Hi, Jason Shohet,

    If it is an intranet application why don't you consider using the IP address
    of the clients? Is there a difference if you have the machine name or if you
    have the user's IP Address (or at least one of the IP addresses that are
    configured on the machine)?

    Greetings
