Web application - access remote server

I am running a local (localhost) web application that needs to access a VSS installation on a remote machine via a DOS command line on my local machine.
I have written the
(Runtime.exec etc) to run the DOS command. But evidently I get an "access is denied" error when the command line tries to access the remotely installed VSS ini file.
My question is this - how can i work out what user my java web app is running as? Or is there a way of making the webapp impersonate my user rights for this connection?
if i can find this out then i can get my IT department to give this user rights to access the remote machine.
Thanks in advance

It sounds like you have solved your problem in your other posts, but just to provide an answer to this one ...
Typing "SET" at the command prompt will provide you with all the environmental variables that the current environment knows about.
So all you need do is run the set command through your call to Runtime.exec within
, and you should be able to see the user that Tomcat is currently running as.
