[FreeNX-kNX] Client IP Lookup

Is there a way to have FreeNX pass the IP address of the connecting 
client to an external script?  I have a complicated setup involving 
FreeNX, wine, a custom Database ap in an archaic language and some 
virtual printer routing scripts.

The heart of my issue is that my Windows DB app does not play nice with 
Wine's print routines so for the time being it is printing to a perl 
listener script on the server that then does some translation of the 
print job and send it on to a printer at the remote location running the 
FreeNX client.  I need to have a "print job receiving daemon" listening 
on the client machine so I need for FreeNX to tell my job routing script 
what IP address the client has just connected from.  I can't always 
count on a specific user to connect for them same IP so handling things 
that way isn't an option.

Any ideas?
