           Summary: OpenSSH should store an SSH_SERVER variable for cluster
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: thomas+openssh at stromberg.org

We run a cluster here with OpenSSH, and have users SSH into various cluster
instance names, each with a virtual IP.

There is no good way to get from OpenSSH the current IP that they have SSH'd
into so we can set their environment up properly. While there is SSH_CLIENT,
there is no SSH_SERVER variable. I think this will be useful for anyone using a
cluster with OpenSSH installed. 

Adding an SSH_SERVER variable was a very trivial 2-line patch, and we've been
using this on our cluster nodes for some months now. I figure now that we are
upgrading to OpenSSH 3.4pl1, we should commit this back so we don't have to
patch it each time we upgrade. I'll attach the tiny patch to this ticket.
