Subject Terminal Server
Author Lester Caine
Sorry for this noise here, but I've been trying 'proper' channels all
day and getting nowhere :)

I know some of you are using Terminal Server, and I have a test system
set up, which is working OK, except - I have no way of identifying the
client machine name - since it always replies with the server name.

Main problem is PHP sessions are being shared across all clients,
because there is actually only one copy of the browser running. Does
anybody know if it is possible to identify the client machine the other
side of Terminal Server - as I use it as part of the security checks,
and restrict access to the data where a terminal is in a public area -
independent of who logs in.

I can't believe that this simple security step is not available - or
perhaps I can - it is Microsoft. So is there any way round it or do I
just tell the customer that they can't have THAT particular security
lock ;) I've already got to rebuild the session software to run server
side rather than client and 'enable' other possible security leaks :)
