REMOTE_NAME_INFO info  Overview  Group

The REMOTE_NAME_INFO data structure contains path and name information about a network resource. The structure contains a member that points to a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name string for the resource, and two members that point to additional network connection information strings.

typedef struct _REMOTE_NAME_INFO { /* rni */ 

    LPTSTR  lpUniversalName; 

    LPTSTR  lpConnectionName; 

    LPTSTR  lpRemainingPath;

The REMOTE_NAME_INFO data structure contains a pointer to a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name string. UNC names look like this:



You can pass the REMOTE_NAME_INFO structure’s lpConnectionName member to the WNetAddConnection2 function as the lpRemoteName member of the NETRESOURCE structure pointed to by lpNetResource. This lets you connect a local device to a network resource. You can then append the string pointed to by the lpRemainingPath member to the local device string, and pass the resulting string to Win32 functions that use a drive-based path.
