Hi

I'm looking for a VB Script Snippet to allow me to identify where a machine is located at logon, for example IP Address and act on it accordingly.

I have a domain operating over three WAN links with mobile users, it would be useful to know where they are logging on, to allow auto modification of shares to point to local shares to reduce WAN Traffic.

Any assistance would be much appreciated

Use the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class and check the value of the IPAddress property. This is returned as an array, so use a For-Each loop to get the value.
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject( _
    "winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set IPConfigSet = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select IPAddress from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration ")
 
For Each IPConfig in IPConfigSet
    If Not IsNull(IPConfig.IPAddress) Then
        For i=LBound(IPConfig.IPAddress) _
            to UBound(IPConfig.IPAddress)
                WScript.Echo IPConfig.IPAddress(i)
        Next
    End If
Next
