If you turn on web server "authentication" to require site users to log in through the server to view a page (which causes the browser to pop up a login window when the page is accessed), then the ODBscript variable $REMOTE_USER$ will contain that authentication login name.

However, there isn't any way to retrieve the user's login name on the system where the browser is running (which, of course, might not be running under Windows).
