I'd say there's a very good chance IIS is interfering with the NTLM
exchange. Why don't you just use IIS's builtin Negotiate support. It also
supports NTLMv2 and Kerberos. There has to be a way to get the username
of the user that made the exchange. Use IIS and then check your request
headers. If IIS were nice they might insert the username there.
