Changing REMOTE_USER RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-137098835 posted


    Is there any way to change the REMOTE_USER server variable to ANY value with ISAPI Filter or ISAPI Extension?  It seems that only some existing windows user login name can be put in it, am I right?

    Thanks for any help,

    Some useful links:

    The name of the user as it is derived from the authorization header sent by the client, before the user name is mapped to a Windows account. If you have an authentication filter installed on your Web server that maps incoming users to accounts, use LOGON_USER to view the mapped user name.
