#1: AUTH_USER vs. LOGON_USER

Posted on 2006-01-19 21:52:02 by GlennNelson

I can't find info to tell me the difference between these two. I've utilized
the AuthFilt sample to remap users. The code rewrites
HTTP_FILTER_AUTHENT.pszUser. Then I view the HTTP server variables and I see
that LOGON_USER has been filled in. So when is AUTH_USER filled in and do I
care?

Hi Glenn,

AUTH_USER is the username as sent by the client (and it is always the same
as REMOTE_USER.) LOGON_USER is the name associate with the NT account that
is actually being used to process the request.

I believe that the only time you will see differences between AUTH_USER and
LOGON_USER is when an authentication filter is changed pszUserName.

I hope that this helps,
