In case it is of any use to you, I have had a go on a solaris machine at work, and I came up with a rough version of an equivelant that should work for you on Solaris. I have run this on a Solaris box with success, so hopefully this will work.

NAME=`who am i | awk '{ print $1 }'`
#get NAME of person logged in

HOSTS=`finger -sfw $NAME | awk '{ print $5 }'`
#finger NAME to get name of users machine

IP=`/usr/sbin/ping -sn $HOSTS 1 1 | grep from | awk '{ print $4 }'`
#ping users machine once with 1 byte to get IP address back
#As I do not have control of what is installed on this machine
#I was limited to the commands I could use....

echo $IP

I hope this is of some help?
