I am having problems getting the GetNetworkParams() API Function. Does anyone have any example code for this api function?

Thanks for your help.

The DNS Server List. I also need to get the gateway and mac address for the primary adapter. I understand that is in the getadaptersinfo() api call, but I haven't looked into it.

Thanks

VB.NET code to get MAC address and Gateway:

imports System
imports System.Management

Public Class WMICardGrab
Public Shared Sub Main()
Dim query as ManagementObjectSearcher = new _
ManagementObjectSearcher("SELECT * FROM
WIN32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = 'TRUE'")
Dim queryCollection as ManagementObjectCollection = query.Get()
Dim mo as ManagementObject
For Each mo In queryCollection
Dim addresses() as string = CType(mo("IPAddress"), string())
Dim defaultgateways() as string = CType(mo("DefaultIPGateway"),
string())

Console.WriteLine("Network Card: {0}", mo("Description"))
Console.WriteLine(" MAC Address: {0}", mo("MACAddress"))

Dim ipaddress as string
For Each ipaddress In addresses
Console.WriteLine(" IP Address: {0}", ipaddress)
Next

Dim gateway as string
For Each gateway In defaultgateways
Console.WriteLine(" Gateway: {0}", gateway)
Next
Next
End Sub
End Class

I need to use the api call, I can't use wmi. I don't have a guarantee that all these machines have wmi.

here is the msdn link to GetNetworkParams:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/iphlp/iphlp/getnetworkparams.asp
if you need help porting it to .net (and it seems this is the case) here is the vb.net version:

I need it for C#, when I port it, I don't get an error value. The application just dies. Any ideas?

if you post the code you use, maybe we can do some debugging...

Thanks for everyone's help. I ended up going with wmi, and just forced the users to have wmi setup.

Thanks
