NS_SERVICE_INFO info  Overview  Group

The NS_SERVICE_INFO structure contains information about a network service or a network service type in the context of a specified name space, or a set of default name spaces.

typedef struct _NS_SERVICE_INFO { 

    DWORD   dwNameSpace; 

    SERVICE_INFO ServiceInfo; 




Specifies the name space or a set of default name spaces to which this service information applies.

Use one of the following constant values to specify a name space: 


Name Space


A set of default name spaces. The set of default name spaces typically includes all the name spaces installed on the system. System administrators, however, can exclude particular name spaces from the set.


The Domain Name System used in the Internet to resolve the name of the host.



The NetWare 4 provider.


The NetBIOS over TCP/IP layer. The operating system registers their computer names with NetBIOS. This name space is used to convert a computer name to an IP address that uses this registration.



The NetWare Service Advertising Protocol. This can access the Netware bindery, if appropriate. NS_SAP is a dynamic name space that enables the registration of services.



Lookup value in the <systemroot>\system32\drivers\etc\posts file.


Local TCP/IP name resolution mechanisms, including comparisons against the local host name and lookup value in the cache of host to IP address mappings.
