    I have an IIS server that sits in a different non-trusted, domain from
    my user accounts. I would like to use the user's OS/LDAP name to
    authenticate my users when logging into my application. Since I can
    point to any LDAP server from my IIS code, I was hoping to obtain the
    login name at the desktop and pass that to my LDAP server for
    verification. All of the mechanisms I've tried so far to obtain the
    user name, have required that I disable anonymous access to IIS. Since
    the IIS server is in a non trusted domain from the user accounts,
    anonymous doesn't appear to be an option.

    Is there a way via ASP to obtain the login name the user used to login
    into their desktop with?

    Thank you in advance.
