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

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.

Nothing built in to Windows will do what you're talking about.  You could probably write something, but what happens if a user is logged into multiple computers at once?

That's kinda what I thought after digging around.   In our organization, it is rare for someone to be logged into 2 computers at a time.  If that occurred, I would want the tool/cmd to return the IP address of all equipment.

Have you heard of a tool that will work on windows to do this?
