The HexLookup ActiveX component provides a simple but complete interface to Windows Sockets DNS functions.

  • Obtain local host name and IP addresses
  • Compatible with any ActiveX client, including ASP, Visual Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, and others
  • Dual interfaces for easy late binding or efficient early binding
  • Reliable, efficient operation. Developed in Visual C++ using ATL.
