I am using gethostbyaddr API in C++ to resolve DNS name for IP address.

This call takes about 3- 4 secs. Is there any better API that does the job quicker and/ better?
I need to API that would work on Win ME, 98 , XP and 2K

Thanks

if the call takes 3-4 seconds, you have a slow DNS resolution, ie a slow DNS Server or Network.
there is no API faster/better than that.

Hi, That depends on your connection speed. And it is always better to stick on to the default API that comes with the OS

Depends on your library and OS.  Winsock and windows could be slow, but it doesn't sound like the problem is the client, but the server.  And no, there isn't anything better.
