The ms_dns_query function resolves the IP address(es) of the specified host name, using a Domain Name Service (DNS). This function does not automatically add the domain to the hostname, you need to include it explicitly.
The ms_dns_query function returns a pointer to a list of IP addresses for the specified hostname, delimited by NULL characters. The first IP address corresponds to the first address returned in the DNS query results. To advance to the next result in the list, use ms_dns_nextresult.
A script that calls ms_dns_query must have an
#include "mic_socket.h" statement.
If this function succeeds, it returns a pointer to a list of IP addresses for the specified hostname, delimited by NULL characters. Otherwise, it returns LR_FAIL.
All arguments of this function of the type char, can be parameterized with standard parameterization.
