What is your question. Preexec will do it, if they have popup messages
enabled on their machines.
Here are the values I trap when a user logs on.
This is for a guest sign in with ftp. If you have logins, you should get
the user name and his machine. Maybe that might be enuf to contact them.


client machine NetBios name = hammer7 (%m)
Primary goup name of U = ftp (%G)
IP address of client = (%I)
Netbios name of server = jhammer6 (%L)
Internet DNS of client= hammer7.jhammer.org (%M)
NIS home directory= jhammer6 (%N)
Protocal level = NT1 (%R)
Current time and date= 2002/07/21 09:55:16 (%T)
Session user name (one the client wanted)= ftp (%U)
Architecture of remote machine= Samba (%a)
Process ID of current server= 21314 (%d)
Internet DNS hostname of server= jhammer6 (%h)
Path of services home directory from NIS= (%p)
Samba version= 2.2.1a (%v)
Home directory of user in u= /home/ftp (%H)
Root directory of current service = / (%P)
Name of current service = public (%S)
Primary group name of u in share = ftp (%g)
User name of current service = ftp (%u)
