Determining client location

Is it possible to determine the client’s location (e.g., ip address) from within a thinlinc session? I’ve looked all around, but can’t see any way to do it. The only things that have that info appear to be inaccessible to the user in the session.

If you are connecting using any of the native clients you can run this command in a terminal within the session:

$ tl-session-param /client_ip

It will print the client IP. Note that this won’t work if you’re connected using ThinLinc Web Access.

Yes indeed, it works! Thanks!
