This can be done by using a channel hook. Don Box explained this technique some time earlier in MSJ.

See

http://www.develop.com/dbox/com/hooks/hosthook/

for the code & explanations

Quote from the page:

"HostHook - A Custom Channel Hook for Recovering Host Name of Caller/Callee

HostHook is a custom channel hook that sends the IP address, process and thread ID of the direct and original caller as an ORPC_EXTENT. This hook is useful for finding out the location of a caller inside a COM method invocation. It is also useful for finding out where a given method executed after the proxy returns control to the client thread. "

If you've got the IP on the server side, simply use

    WSADATA wsaData;
   
    if (::WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(1, 1), &wsaData) == 0)
    {
        char szHostName[256];

              HOSTENT* phe;

              phe = gethostbyaddr ( ...);

              if ( phe)
                 {
                   printf ( "%s\n", phe->h_name);
                 }
 

        ::WSACleanup();
    }
