[Obtaining OS login name using] javascript

I am not aware of any properties that expose the login name in any browser.

or php also cant??

Server-side PHP can have no knowledge of the state of a remote machine unless that machine sends the information to the server, and browsers do not transmit OS login names.

It would be possible to use ActiveX to obtain the login name, though I don't know if there are existing objects that provide such a feature. However, even if there were, that would severely limit the browsers a user could use.

What's wrong with a low-tech solution?

<label>Login name: <input name="login" value=""></label>
