How to Get Network Interface Number (NIC)?

zovestazovesta Posts: 10Member
Hii...

I would like to know how can i get the NIC number ?

i've tried the following code but it isn't what i am looking for...it gives me a string of {CCC-CCCCC-CCC}...which i doubt it's the right NIC number as i've tried it on a PC with no NIC & it gave me the same string... & i've tried it on two different PC's with NIC but i still got the same results!!
i am usingg VC++ 6

/***********************************************************/
#include "Winuser.h"
#include "Nb30.h"

struct
{
ADAPTER_STATUS AdapterStatus;
NAME_BUFFER NameBuffer;
} NcbBuffer;

UCHAR ret_code = 1;
NCB ncb;

memset( &ncb, 0, sizeof( ncb ) );
ncb.ncb_command = NCBRESET;
ret_code = Netbios( &ncb );

// ncb.ncb_command = NCBASTAT;

ncb.ncb_num = NCBASTAT;
ncb.ncb_buffer = (PUCHAR)&NcbBuffer;
ncb.ncb_length = sizeof( NcbBuffer );
memset( ncb.ncb_callname, ' ', NCBNAMSZ - 1 );
ncb.ncb_callname[ NCBNAMSZ -1 ] = 0;
ncb.ncb_callname[ 0 ] = '*';
ret_code = Netbios( &ncb );
char s[ 256 ] = "";

for (int i = 0; i<sizeo(NcbBuffer.AdapterStatus.adapter_address ) /
sizeof(NcbBuffer.AdapterStatus.adapter_address[ 0 ] ); i++ )

sprintf( s+strlen(s), "%02X-",
NcbBuffer.AdapterStatus.adapter_address[ i ] );
s[ strlen( s ) - 1 ] = '';
MessageBox(s, "Ethernet address", MB_OK );

/***********************************************************/

Is there any better way that i can use to get the NIC number directly?

Thanx for ur help:)

    free( AdapterStatus );

    }[/code]

    Hope this helps!
