I want to change the .bashrc file so that it sets something up different depending upon if you're coming from one ip or another.  How do you find out which remote ip is telnetted into the current terminal?  Thanks in advance.

if you do a
who -T
it will tell you what remote ip the user is coming from.

Unfortunately it lists all users currently logged on.  And when you are on the localhost it stats (0:0)

That answer is off the top of my head.  Give me some time to research it and I may find something else.  Unless someone already knows the answer.

place this in your script.

PORT_ID=`who -m |awk '{print $6}' |sed "s/^(// ; s/)$//"`
