Q. The REMOTE_USER environment variable is not being set for CGIs if a directory is protected by the software. How do I get the login name?

A. This is to be expected. If REMOTE_USER was set, then IIS would try to authenticate against NTFS, which would disallow all entry. Instead, you can use the OCX component to find out who is logged in, http://www.flicks.com/authentix/currentusername.htm You should be able to add the component to your cgi program. or you can get it out of HTTP_AUTHORIZATION and then base64 decode it.
