you must implement netbios name resolving.
Do a search in this list, some
people have posted code snippets how to do this.
Regards Bonny Gijzen,
I'm building an embedded web server
using LWIP. It uses DHCP to get an IP address, and I have enabled hostnames so
the name is sent back in the DHCP REQUEST packet.
This platform is an
example kit for customers so I want them to be able to plug it into their LAN
and then navigate to the server using its hostname in a web browser.
doesn't seem to work on our network which uses Windows 2003 Server. I suspect
that the list of hostnames is secured by the windows domain server, so it won't
dynamically assign the hostname for my server when I plug it in.
any way around this?
