Get users to use a specific IP subnet

I am trying to tighten the security of users on a specific IP subnet to ensure that they use only user IDs appropriate for their location. During the login process, how can I obtain the TCP/IP route information associated with a specific QPADEVxxxx workstation ID?

It is possible to find the IP address of the device you use by calling API named QDCRDEVD. Please refer to this tip by Search400.com expert John Kohan "Retrieve the IP address of an active device".
