You should train your user to check whatever clues your client provides of
the target, such as "the window title displays: server5.example.org
You could also add your own "banner" to the client, by making it show
Connecting to server5.example.org
The server is the same I met previously.
As you are the ones making the client software, the options are endless.
for instance allow showing aliases instead of full domain names.
