    Default How to identify users?

    I need to know how to identify users who have filled out a survey and click a "Submit" button so they cannot take the same survey two or more times.<BR><BR>So far I have captured their IP Address and created a cookie. However, some people do not let their browsers accept cookies and IP Addresses change to frequently. I need to know how to capture a users machine name (NetBios Name).<BR><BR>Can anyone help me with this?<BR><BR>Thanks.

    I don&#039t think you will come up with a method to elimate this completely......but you could make the users login with a username and password. Initially the password would be generated by you and sent to their e-mail address which they must supply. Of course, this all takes a bit of time and may turn the users off from your survey. <BR><BR>BTW, the NetBios name of a PC can be changed easily as well but the user would have to recognize that as one of your criteria.<BR><BR>-geeoff
