Hi!

Is NetBIOS functions the easiest way to
get a list of all the Computer Names in the Windows Network?
Is there no "smart" functions like file-functions but for networks?

Thanks!

If you're using NT, 'NetServerEnum()' will do the job (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/network/ntlmapi2_1vl9.htm). On all other MS 'platforms', use 'WNetEnumResource()' (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/network/networks_03ad.htm)

Thank you!

It's a really good function, but I just get the first letter in each computer I find. You'll get some more points if you can help me in solving that.
I guess I need to allocate some more memory somehow to get the whole string, but I don't really see where. The helpfile tells me that if I use MAX_PREFERRED_LENGTH, (-1), "the function will allocate the amount of memory needed for the data."

What do I do wrong?

(I have followed the sample-code in the link you gave me, it's a bit different from my helpfile, I don't know which one that is the oldest. For example in my helpfile it sais that I should include lmserver.h, but that doesn't work, it works with lm.h, which I found in your helpfile)

Thanks!

OK, now I gave myself a lesson in Unicode handling, so I know now what I did wrong.

Thanks for the tip!
