Ok then.  I am not familiar with IIS, but try the following :
In the AJP <Connector> of Tomcat, in server.xml, add the attribute

Then try again in your servlet with getRemoterUser().

If that does not work, then we wiil have to find an easy way to dump the 
HTTP request headers received by Tomcat, to see if there is one there 
from which we can obtain the user-id.

Note that this is all a shortcut that may work in some cases.
If your real final purpose is to do SSO at the Tomcat level, based on 
the user's Domain login, then I suggest that you have a look here :  (Jespa)
