"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

May be this will help

struct HOSTENT FAR * gethostbyname ( const char FAR * name
Where hostent is defined as
struct hostent {
    char FAR *       h_name;
    char FAR * FAR * h_aliases;
    short            h_addrtype;
    short            h_length;
    char FAR * FAR * h_addr_list;

Official name of the host (PC).If using the DNS or similar resolution system, it is the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) that caused the server to return a reply. If using a local "hosts" file, it is the first entry after the IP address.

So you can get the DN name giving the local name of host.

Thanx ufolk123!

But i need the name of
LAN Domain - no loclal host or DNS resolving.


Do you want the domain name that the machine is currently a member of, or the domain of the account that is running the current process.
Look at the NetEnum functions in the Help files and check for all containers. They should have the Domain in there if you have problems let me know i got some code i have done it with.
