The only tool that I can think of is the Exchange User Monitor.

I have that tool.  I thought it might work, but it really doesn't do what I want.  It refreshes every 1 minute and only shows those with usage at the time of refresh.  I just want to see all logged on with IP.

I am not aware of any application that does what you need.
It is obvious that the information is available, but I don't know how you can access it.

Thanks.  To me, it seems like a basic thing that everyone would want.  I've used a tool like this on another system and thought it would be available here.  Let's see if anyone else responds.  I could write something if there was a table to query or something.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I have been working with Exchange servers for many years and it has never been something that I have needed.
I don't really care where the users are coming in from. They could be on the LAN, WAN or the Internet.

There is no table to query - I am not even sure whether the data is exposed in a way that can be accessed via a third party query.

I guess that is a bummer for me.  Why it's helpful to me is because I do alot of RDP into users at remote locations.  I need the IP to get into their machine.  99% of those people are logged into Exchange, so I thought if I could go that route to get the IP.  That only reason I want to IP is so I do not have to walk the user through how to get it and then tell me over the phone.  I just want to grab it myself and help the user and be on my way.  Any suggestions for obtaining user IP over the network?

There are various tools and applications that will display the IP address of the machine on the desktop or as an icon beside the clock. You could deploy one of those and then ask the user what it says.

Thanks again.  I already have that as well.  It is so simple for the user.  All they do is brush the mouse over the icon.  I am not wanting to degrade my intelligent users, but it seems that for some it is such a challenge for them to get the IP for them.  They are already emotional when they call me, to ask them to give me their IP seems very painful.  I'd just like to grab it myself if possible.
