Get client worksation name the TS application was started from

Get client worksation name the TS application was started from

If I install an application on a machine, I can get the Computer name using GetComputerName function (or using the ComputerName Environment variable).

If this application is installed on a terminal server and started from the client, how do I reliably get the same exact client ComputerName?

Thank you!
