Retrieve TCP/IP Information

Does anyone know how to retrieve the HOSTNAME field from TCP/IP in a CL program? The field is the HOSTNAME field if you do a CHGTCPDMN-F4.  It seems like you should be able to retrieve this to be used in a CL, but I haven't been able to find anything regarding it.

I appreciate any help.

I think that you will have to write a wrapper program in RPGLE or C to use this API.

Assuming that you're really intending to mean the field that is affected by the HOSTNAME() parameter, then this is the API that you need:

As with gethostname() that Shalom suggested, this API must be called as a procedure. For CL, that means you must use ILE CL and use the CALLPRC command. You can bind system service program QTOCNETSTS to access the QtocRtvTCPA API. Request format 'TCPA0300' and extract the value from the field documented as "Host name". Note that "Domain name" is available in the next field.
