Hi,

Try like this.

I think, you can get like this

--> Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"]
--> Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_HOST"]
--> Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_USER"]

But you need to enable Reverse DNS Lookup for you IIS.

or

string PCName = Dns.GetHostEntry(Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"]).HostName;

Thanks,
Mahesh

Hi,
If your requirement is to get the logged in username then you can use the below code
   //Get the Logged in username

string clientMachineName = HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name;

This will give you the current user for the web application.

Please ensure that you have added the below namespace in your page
using System.Web;
