Is it possible to get the client's computer name?

I dont think so.

I do not think a post/get request will send such information.

It can be done using an ActiveX object, but the client computer's setting has to be set to a ridiculously low level.

Probably it is enough to use Request.UserHostName and Request.UserHostAddress (on server-side). no?
