[techtalk] Where'd I come from?

I'm trying to autoset the DISPLAY value when I log in remotely.
Under Sunos, the remote system name was output by the 'who -m' command,
and under IRIX it was in REMOTEHOST, but I am not readily seeing how
to handle this in SuSE 6.3.  I thought about trying to pick values
out of the 'last' command, but it truncates the system name anyway.

So anyone know a command will display the system I logged in from (empty
if a local login)?
