[omniORB] Any way to differentiate clients with omniORB

I don't think there's anything simple.  Possibilities include

1) Use a different servant, and thus a distinct CORBA object, for each
2) If sharing servant state across clients is necessary, use a single
servant and register it multiple times with a POA with distinct object IDs.
Give each client a distinct IOR, and then the POA can tell you which IOR
was used to make the up-call.
3) Use an interceptor to store socket IP/port information in thread-local
storage and then access that within the up-call.

For #2 see
