Hello experts, I have a question , I need to know how to detect all the PCs connected in the network...
In windows you can use the explorer to see all the groups and computers in the network, how can I obtain this information programatically ?
Is there a call to windows API or something to do this ?

dimitry that's to get my current configuration , not get the pcs that belong to the network....
Kumvjuec I had found that sample before but could you explain what result would that throw ? Would it be the PCs in the network ? I tried to run that sample and I got no results...
