How do I get the computer account from which a user signed in to my application?

How to get the user account with which he accesses the application in case Form authentication


I am using the following method, but it is not getting the required data:

protected string[] TrackUser()
    System.Web.HttpContext context = System.Web.HttpContext.Current;
    string IP = context.Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"];
    string compName = (Dns.GetHostEntry(Request.ServerVariables["remote_addr"]).HostName);
    string account = Request.ServerVariables["AUTH_USER"];
    string[] user_network_data = new string[3];
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(IP))
        string[] addresses = IP.Split(',');
        if (addresses.Length != 0)
            IP = addresses[0];
        IP = context.Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];
    user_network_data[0] = IP;
    user_network_data[1] = compName;
    user_network_data[2] = account;
    return user_network_data;

I think you are just grabbing the wrong original information from the request. Try the following:

string IP = context.Request.UserHostAddress;
string compName = context.Request.UserHostName;
string account = context.Request.LogonUserIdentity.Name;


I think the rest of your code should work just fine as long as you have the correct data to start with.
