Hi all,
I have a LAN connection having two computers.I have an application running on a computer.The application needs some information of other computer like ip address,mac address,DNS name,OS name and version,subnet mask,default gateway.How should i do this?The other computer should broadcast its information or the first computer poll the othet one to send its information?

with regards,
ajse

It is better to keep the machine which will provide its information waiting on specified socket, and any another machine needs to get this information, should contact it using this openned socket.
