Terminal Services Scripting question

Hi,

Not sure if it is supposed to go here but,

What I need to do is have a vbscript running at logon point (I know how to run this through the system policies) that determines the hostname (Terminal services calls it client name in the terminal services connection manager) and copies a certain file to a directory.

Is there a way in vbscript that I can ask what is the hostname of the connecting machine (the machine that is running the TS client software).
 and if it equals this then copy a file.


Thanks
Chris

Look at the environment variable called: CLIENTNAME
Type SET at the command prompt when your TS'd into the remote box.

CLIENTNAME as the name implies is the connecting computer.

Thus in VBS:

set shell = WScript.CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
strClientName = shell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%CLIENTNAME%")
wscript.echo strClientName

Hope that helps.
