I am getting user name by using the following code:

txtName.Text = Environment.UserName;

I have deployed the code in IIS and while running the application then i am getting
user name as "NETWORK SERVICE" in the textbox instead of logged user name.

Thanks in advance.

Use User.Identity.Name to get Identity/Name of LoggedIn user.

However this is applicable when you are using Windows-Authentication and "Anonymous Authentication" is set to false in IIS.

Have a look at below links for more information on "Windows-Authentication" in Asp.Net.
