Just wondering if there is a way to capture the host name of the computer filling out the survey and record that information in the survey.

For example, in a DOS window I can type the following and it returns the computer name:
echo %computername%

Thank you!

After reading a lot of the forum posts I believe this needs to be done somehow with url passthrough and a hidden question.

This is the URL I am working with currently..
'http://tsasurvey/limesurvey/index.php/576678/lang-en'

I tried this but it did not work:
'http://tsasurvey/limesurvey/index.php/576678/lang-en&cname=%computername%'


cname is the passthrough variable I want to record in each survey.

No, you cannot access the settings or information from a respondents computer. (even if you could it would be a huge privacy violation)

thanks.

what would be the best way to determine who each survey is from (aside from ip address which is dhcp and changes frequently)?

this is not an anonymous survey, just a survey about which applications someone uses

I do not want a complicated process... just click on items pertaining to the person and then click submit

thanks!

IP external adress are not from internal DHCP, but from ISP DHCP

For example, in a society, if 2 user access to your survey, their ip adress are the same.

The only information you can have is the expernal IP adress.
