Sending commands using WebFacing

Is it possible to access the computer name of the current PC workstation -- from an iSeries session -- being run in a browser window? We use to pass it as the session name in Client Access, but session name is dynamic in the new WebFacing environment. Any remote command I can find requires you to already know the name.
When using WebFacing, it's not possible to send a command to the connecting PC. The workstation manager speaks with WebFacing and the application server.

That is the IP of the station is the IP of the application server (WebSphere?). Why would you like to send a command to the remote PC if you can easily set a link on the HTML page to activate whatever you want? The process is as follows:

* Convert the application.
* On the resulting JSP and a link to activate what ever is needed.
