    You can use the WNetEnumResource() function to list the contents of "Network Neighbourhood" A nice sample can be found at http://win32.mvps.org/network/wnoe_wner.html

    Alternative approaches could use NetServerEnum() or NetQueryDisplayInformation().

    All these functions return computer names which can be resolved to ip addresses with gethostbyname() or getaddrinfo().
