Querying Network Settings

Introduction

You can use the DMProcessConfigXML function to query any of the network settings.

Example

The following string would query for the DestId parameter of a PPP connection inside the CM_PPPEntries configuration service provider when passed to DMProcessConfigXml.

<characteristic type="CM_PPPEntries">
    <characteristic type="CorpNetPPP">
      <parm-query name="DestId" />
    </characteristic>
</characteristic>

Passing this string to DMProcessConfigXml queries the configuration service provider for the value of the DestId parameter for that particular PPP connection, and returns the following XML string:

<characteristic type="CM_PPPEntries">
    <characteristic type="CorpNetPPP">
      <parm name="DestId" value="{A1182988-0D73-439e-87AD-2A5B369F808B}" />
    </characteristic>
</characteristic>
