Re: [fw-wiz] Getting windows user name?

Best guess:
A query of the domain controller that processed that user's login requests from said computer.

I know there's a parameter/field that's updated with when & from where a user was authenticated however that implies the use of a domain & said controllers: entirely useless for a stand-alone system.

I'm afraid you're going to be stuck using a direct query to the host (nbtstat -a) or via the other tools that have been suggested (SysInternal options).

Best of luck,

Any chance to do that either

-- without netbios queries, via ldap
-- without requesting info from workstation itself, from AD directly?
