Searching for servers

P: 53

IN my application i want to have clients to search for a server with a certain name.

I am using WinSock, c++.

i have read about using WSASERVICECLASSINFO and WSANSCLASSINFO to create a service class

has anyone done any of that or did something differently?

Please Help

Refer to this article Flawed Routers Flood University of Wisconsin Internet Time Server for a discussion of problems that can be caused by hard-coded URLs in computer programs.

thank kindly for your reply.

Though i think i migth just use broadcasting, since im just working on the local network rather than the interent.

So is there any guides on how to do broadcasting as well as does anyone know if there are different ways for a client to search of a server?
