By definition server side code runs on the server which is not supposed to have access to that. If working in a controlled environment (ie computers belonging to your company), you could perhaps get this information using WMI but then what will you do with
IMO for this kind of question, it's best to start first by explaining your exact final goal regardless of any technical consideration (you want to print from the server side to a network printer attached locally to a computer ?)

What if the user does a screenshot or take a photo etc... Make sure first what you exactly want to prevent.
AFAIK you have basically :
- DRMs (which usually don't worth the investment, it's rather to enforce explicitely a policy, not really to prevent spying on basic information that could be copied without transferring the actual file)
- unrealistic requirements which would basically require some kind of brain washing device

As it's been said, you do not have control over the end-user's browser to do what you want. We understand your question; you don't need to repeat it.
