IP address of telnet client

Hi,
I am using the telnet client on windowsNT to access the Unix system.

I want to find out the IP address of the telnet client from the server side.

The reason is I want to set the DISPLAY environment variable when the user is logged on.

Is there anyway that the the Unix server can determine the IP address of the telnet client machine.

Thanks in advance,
Vu

The 3B20S (simplex) ran using the UNIX operating system and was developed at Bell Labs and produced by WECo in 1982 for the general purpose internal Bell System use, and later the mini-computer market.
