Terminal Server - Echo Client Name

Hi,

I have users connecting to a terminal server from client XP machines.

I would like to create a batchfile which will echo the name of the client they are connecting from - this means they can open this batchfile which will tell them the client computer name they are connecting from.

This is necessary because they login to the terminal server under the same user many times, and so we need to identify which session they are when they call up.

This batchfile would be on the desktop of the terminal server, NOT the client itself.

Cheers,
LVL 1
