If you check out the W32api set of functions in the php documentation you'll see that it is possible to call a Windows API function from PHP. For example, GetUserName.

no that's not possible with php :) unless you use the overflow bug in apache and get control over the box :)

You do mean the username of the visitor right? not the username of the server :)
