IIS is only aware of the client's username if the client chooses to send
something to IIS. This may be the credentials that the user is logged on as,
or it may be alternate, acceptable credentials that the user has supplied to
IIS. By default, IE will attempt to "auto logon" for sites in the local
Intranet security zone, and then you can get the user name via the
Request.ServerVariables collection (in ASP): (for IE info)
