Default No Request.ServerVariables info. is available when accessing ASP pages via browswer

Hi All,

Apologies if this query is too specialist to be posted here, but I would appreciate any ideas.

My problem is that I have written a couple of simple ASP pages which enable users from my firm to search an internal database, this works fine when accessed via IE6 on a PC. I have now written a slimmed-down version of the application which can be accessed via the browser on a Blackberry 8700.

Everything appears to work fine, the handheld devices are configured to authenticate against the web server on which my ASP application resides and I can perform searches against our shop database from the Blackberry (although the response times aren't quite as good!!).

When a user performs a search from a PC, a record of the search is kept: this audit trail stores the date and time of the search, the product being searched for and the username of the person conducting the search. The username is discovered using:
The problem has arisen when I have had a look at the audit trail of searches which have been conducted from a Blackberry, I am able to record the IP address of the device, but the LOGON_USER and AUTH_USER variables do not contain any information.

I have written a simple page to display the contents of all of the Request.ServerVariables on the Blackberry but nothing resembling the username is present amongst them.

My question is, can anybody tell me if there are any other methods of discovering the username of the logged on user?

Thank you for your time.
