How can I get a username at ASP pages to connect to our site by dial up?

I'm a computer programmer (Web Programmer with ASP & VB). We have an intranet site. I want know how can I get an online user's username at ASP pages that connect to our site by dial up? Is there any component for it? Our OS is Windows 2000 Advance Server. Thanks.
Unfortunately, no. The only thing that comes into IIS is a TCP/IP packet. There's no information in that packet to indicate the user dialed into their ISP. You will have to ask the user.
