HTGetDomainName on NT



On NT 3.5X we're seeing a problem we're not seeing on Win95. On Win95, 
HTGetDomainName calls HTGetHostName which calls gethostname(), which in 
turn returns a fully qualified hostname (e.g. machine.domain.com), but on NT 
3.5X it only gets back the machine name itself. Since Winsock doesn't support 
a getdomainname(), this leaves us in bad shape trying to back our way into 
trying to contact another web server inside the user's domain referred to in 
the URL only by the machine name itself without the domain.

Has anyone worked around this in wwwlib?
