Our company lets users log in from office, home, and any other location to our network. How do I determine programatically from which location he is logged in from (Home, Office, or any other location)?

How are the users logging on? Is it through the web application or by some other means like RDP, VPN?
Pending the above we also need to know what type of authentication mechanism, like windows auth, custom user name password?

I think it might be possible by checking client's IP address
Typically VPN connection assigns IP from a different range and you can identify it by checking first digits XXX.XXX. Test it yourself, or contact your network administrator for more details. You can also go to IIS log to see what IP addresses you got there.

A lot of times a home user would not have a static IP so for VPN's that secure it using digital certificates so depending how your sysadm configured it, it may or may not work
Still need OP to comment on how the remote connection is made
