Use your script to grab the gateway of the computer and store it as a variable.  Then, use an if/then statement to map the file server based on the value of the variable.  To know exactly how to do this, we would need to know what language your login script uses.

The File servers are on DFS replication. can y ou still point it to local to the session login. for example local site when login is executed according to ip address can you point to the local file not the one in the cloud?

Yes, you CAN, but I would not recommend it.  If you are using DFS, you should just point to your share as you do above.  If you really need to, though, you can configure each site to use specific server shares rather than the DFS share.
