Propagating WebVPN Username to Inside Network

Unanswered Question
May 6th, 2008

Hello all, I have WebVPN working. However, from an internal httpd server, I cannot determine the username of the webvpn user that is logged in. Is there a way of passing in (or retrieving) the webvpn username on an internal webserver without requiring another login?

Thank you.

I have this problem too.

For webvpn, you can use single signon server which requires SiteMinder or SAML POST. This is if you are using an ASA 5500 device.

Bummer. I was hoping for some change in the html on 5505 to pass it through in a cookie or URL.

Well, thanks anyway for your reply.

I use the ASA itself to authenticate. I enter the usernames in the VPN configuration.
