Does anyone have a methodology for accessing the Windows Network ID of the logged in user from within a Rails application? My company has an IIS/asp framework for its intranet. All those pages make use of the ServerVariables data embedded in the Request object to access the user name of the logged-in network user, as in: Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER") Apparently ServerVariables is something that IIS wraps into the Request object. I need something equivalent in Rails, or I'll never be able to get traction with RoR here. Any ideas?
Server variables are just a derivative of Environment variables. Those
are accessible through Ruby, and hence Rails.
