Win9x question...

Well then my follow-up e-mail is completely useless.

  I think you still need to put this in context. Kevin is writing a program. 
  It is easy to find this informaiton by hand, more difficult to get it 
  programatically. I can generally answer much of the programming questions 
  in C or C++ but not in terms of a BASIC dialect I don't know. 
  From a program there are roughtly 3 ways:
  1. Directly through an API. (best way)
  2. Indirectly by calling a standard command and parsing the output.
  3. By looking at Windows internal structures. I consider the Registry as an 
  internal structure in this context). 

  Host names are generally associated with each interface. On Windows, there 
  are pseudo interfaces. So you need to find the one associated with the NIC 
  or the IP address, or on a LAN without IP, the appropriate host name, also 
  associatred with a NIC card.
