Hello,

Yes, IIS can do such authorization type.
You may retrieve user name from server variables. Perhaps the following names may help LOGON_USER or AUTH_USER.

We tried it in our environment and what you need in Ruby is the following:
Code:
request.env[ 'APPL_PATH' ]
request.env[ 'LOGON_USER' ]

Hi, Andrew
ok, thanks, I'll try it:)
What's more, I have a rails project, before this, I run it
on mongrel server. Now I want to use WebMatrix, so how can
I easily move my rails project to the WebMatrix and get it
run under IIS?

Thanks!
Carl
