    WINS api?

    Hi all! I'm new to C++, so please bear with me . What I need to know is where I can get documentation on using WINS (in Visual C++). Thanks for any help.

    Believe me, thats the largest web site in the whole entire internet. It has more documentation than your whole bookstore put together. Its a jungle where you get lost. The info is there, just hard to find.

    Yup, WINS as in networking. I'm trying to use it to take a username and return what boxes they are logged into, and take a computer name or ip and return who is logged into it.
