There is a long distance between "Python" and "browser" - you'll have to  
tell us what is in between the two.
By example, do you have a server and the user connects to it? is it  
running Python? how do you run the Python application?
And why do you want to do that on the server side? Isn't easier to do that  
on the client side? What about proxies? NAT?

If using CGI, look at the REMOTE_ADDR environment variable.
