This is great stuff. I'd seen it on the AS400 news group a while ago but
keep losing track of it.

A comment, lest anyone think this applies to WSG & LPD—it doesn't. The WSG
does not use the same mechanism—for the life of me, I can't see why not—as
TELNET. But you can get the IP address for WSG clients from the WSG
log—check TCP/IP Config & Ref, WSG chapter, for details. This works  only
so long as your signon screen matches the IBM default screen in the upper
10 lines or so. In other words, anything you add to customize the screen
must appear below the IBM default stuff.
