Hy, I've created an applet to get the user name. It is pretty simple because I used "System.getProperty("user.name");". I had no problems with the security restrictions also! In Internet Explorer everything works correctly and I get the Login User name. But with the Netscape-Browser I got the name where I defined the e-mail-address in the preferences menu ("ronny.peterhans"). Is there a possibility to get the "correct" user name or do I have to read from the registry? If I have to do so then please tell me how!
