IP and remote username info?

» close window

The Question is:

How can I get the username of the original/master process when I am
 telneted/sshed/set hosted with a different username?
For example, my users name is mhall I am SSHed to my alpha and logged under
 username "testhr". What can I do to to identify that the original username is
 "mhall" while I am logged under "tetsthr". Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks a million.

The Answer is :

  The IP stack does not offer this feature; there is no username
  information uniformly available within the IP stack, unlike
  the implementation of DECnet.  You will have to implement this
  yourself, or use a distributed authentication mechanism such
  as Kerberos.
