Citrix: Return the VIrtual IP address of the current users Citrix session

For a long time I have been trying to find or write a vbs script that will return the Virtual IP address of the current users Citrix XenApp session on Windows 2003.

I have managed to finally find a way of doing it, please comment if you have a better way!!!!!!

The big problem with the script is the user running the script needs to be a Citrix administrator.

I will continue to work on this problem and will post new versions.
