#include "wmsserver.h"

// Declare variables and interfaces.
IWMSServer      *pServer;

// Initialize the COM library and retrieve a pointer
// to an IWMSServer interface.

                      (void **)&pServer);
if (FAILED(hr)) goto EXIT;

// Retrieve a pointer to an IWMSPlayers interface
// and retrieve the total count of current connections.
hr = pServer->get_Players(&pPlayers);
if (FAILED(hr)) goto EXIT;
hr = pPlayers->get_Count(&lCount);
if (FAILED(hr)) goto EXIT;

// Retrieve information about each client connection.
for (long x = 0; x < lCount; x++)
{
    varIndex = x;
    hr = pPlayers->get_Item(varIndex, &pPlayer);
    if (FAILED(hr)) goto EXIT;

    // Retrieve the requested URL of the client.
    hr = pPlayer->get_RequestedURL(&bstrURL);
    if (FAILED(hr)) goto EXIT;
