SQL Server Tips by Gama and Naughter Consulting



Two functions from the IP Helper API will provide all the information necessary for the XP. One is GetAdaptersInfo and the other one is GetNetworkParams.

GetAdaptersInfo provides details about the network adapter for the local computer. This function returns an IP_ADAPTER_INFO structure, containing information about the network adapter in its member variables. For example the current IP address, Gateway, DHCP server, Wins server, etc.

GetNetworkParams provides details about the network parameters for the local computer. This function returns an FIXED_INFO structure, containing network information that is identical for all network adapters.
