Hi,

You can either provide Forms authentication or LogIn Page to get UserName.
Otherwise you won't get it when it is hosted in IIs.

Mark as answer if satisfied....

write:-

string userName = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name;


Or

string userName = System.Environment.UserName

Also use

string username = Convert.ToString(WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name);

Hi,

All the codes that you guys have provided are working only when the application runs in local.
But when we host the application in IIS, none of it is working.

Hi use this:-

public static string GetFQDN()
{
string domainName = NetworkInformation.IPGlobalProperties.GetIPGlobalProperties().DomainName;
string hostName = Dns.GetHostName();
string fqdn = “”;
if (!hostName.Contains(domainName))
fqdn = hostName + “.” + domainName;
else
fqdn = hostName;

return fqdn;
}

Also use-

Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_REFERER"]

Or

System.Environment.MachineName
HttpContext.Current.Server.MachineName
System.Net.Dns.GetHostName()
