in to the computer and then put that into a textbox?
Say I log into my computer as smith
I then want smith (or whoever) is logged into my windows PC to be
echo'ed into a textbox.
Can something like this be done?...How would you go about doing it?
Re: getting the username variable and putting it in txtbox?
Yes, but only if you're running an ident server on your computer.
Ident servers allow other hosts on the Internet when you connect to them
to query back to your computer to find out who is connecting to them. Of
course, they are a major privacy (and some would argue security) issue,
which is why virtually nobody runs them.
If this is for a company intranet, you could solve this by requiring all
workstations to have an ident server installed. So long as access to them
from the internet at large is blocked by a firewall, it shouldn't present
much of a privacy/security problem.
