Is there a quick way to identify a users IP address remotely

HCSHAW asked

I was wondering, is there a tool or command that would quickly give me the current IP address of a user?

As an admin, I need to identify what piece of equipment the user is on, and what his IP address is to access that equipment.   I can do this in a round about way, but I was wondering if there is a quick command / tool that would allow me to simply type in the user name/domain and it return  their current IP address within the domain.

Not a big issue.  I am just looking for a quicker way to identify them on the network.
