NetWkstaTransportEnum function

The NetWkstaTransportEnum function supplies information about transport protocols that are managed by the redirector, which is the software on the client computer that generates file requests to the server computer.


NET_API_STATUS NetWkstaTransportEnum(
  _In_    LPWSTR  servername,
  _In_    DWORD   level,
  _Out_   LPBYTE  *bufptr,
  _In_    DWORD   prefmaxlen,
  _Out_   LPDWORD entriesread,
  _Out_   LPDWORD totalentries,
  _Inout_ LPDWORD resumehandle


servername [in]

A pointer to a string that specifies the DNS or NetBIOS name of the remote server on which the function is to execute. If this parameter is NULL, the local computer is used.

level [in]

The level of information requested for the data. This parameter can be the following value.


Return workstation transport protocol information. The bufptr parameter points to an array of WKSTA_TRANSPORT_INFO_0 structures.


bufptr [out]

A pointer to the buffer that receives the data. The format of this data depends on the value of the level parameter. This buffer is allocated by the system and must be freed using the NetApiBufferFree function. Note that you must free the buffer even if the function fails with ERROR_MORE_DATA or NERR_BufTooSmall.

prefmaxlen [in]

The preferred maximum length of returned data, in bytes. If you specify MAX_PREFERRED_LENGTH, the function allocates the amount of memory required for the data. If you specify another value in this parameter, it can restrict the number of bytes that the function returns. If the buffer size is insufficient to hold all entries, the function returns ERROR_MORE_DATA or NERR_BufTooSmall. For more information, see Network Management Function Buffers and Network Management Function Buffer Lengths.

entriesread [out]

A pointer to a value that receives the count of elements actually enumerated.

totalentries [out]

A pointer to a value that receives the total number of entries that could have been enumerated from the current resume position. Note that applications should consider this value only as a hint.

resumehandle [in, out]

A pointer to a value that contains a resume handle which is used to continue an existing workstation transport search. The handle should be zero on the first call and left unchanged for subsequent calls. If the resumehandle parameter is a NULL pointer, no resume handle is stored.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is NERR_Success.

If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following error codes.

Return codeDescription

More entries are available. Specify a large enough buffer to receive all entries.


The level parameter, which indicates what level of data structure information is available, is invalid. This error is returned if the level parameter is specified as a value other than zero.


One or more parameters was invalid. This error is returned if the bufptr or the entriesread parameters are NULL pointers.


Insufficient memory was available to process the request.


The request is not supported. This error is returned if a remote server was specified in servername parameter, and this request is not supported on the remote server.


More entries are available. Specify a large enough buffer to receive all entries. This error code is defined in the Lmerr.h header file.



No special group membership is required to successfully execute the NetWkstaTransportEnum function.
