Keywords: IP Grabber extenders updates new features
Note: The IP Grabber extender requires the current version of WinSock 2 to function properly, or else it will get an error on the AddExtender line. Windows 95 with no service packs will not work and requires an update from http://www.microsoft.com Enter… Windows Socket 2 Update in the search box to locate the update. Windows 98 does NOT need this update. Windows 95 with SP1 does NOT need this update. Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 do NOT need this update. However we have found that NT 4.0 needs SP3 or it does not work. The new MAC Address grabber functions use the same SNMP traps that Windows uses when you run the netstat command. Hence, it operates a layer or two below the WMI interface, and will run on machines that don't have a working WMI installation. IP Grabber Extender Installation: Run the SETUP.WBT file to install the extender for you. IP GRABBER EXTENDER FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS Version 14001, Jan 17, 2000 Initial release Functions ipVersion(request code) Returns extender version number information ipGetLastErr() Returns last runtime error number ipGetAddress() Returns a doubly-delimited list of all IP addresses found along with other related information. Version 14002, Apr 20, 2000 Added functions ipPing ipHost2Addr ipAddr2Host Version 14005 Dec 12, 2000 The IP Grabber extender has been updated to a new format to allow more descriptive function names and additional parameters. This version of the extender requires WinBatch 2001A or newer to run. It will not work on WinBatch 2000C or older. In addition, so as not to affect existing scripts using a previous version of this extender, the extender DLL has been renamed to include a 34I in the DLL name instead of a 32I. Old and new versions of this extender can *usually* co-exist side by side. To use the new extender with old scripts and with WinBatch 2001A or newer you will need to change the AddExtender line in the script to reflect the new DLL name. e.g. AddExtender("wwipg32i.dll") should become AddExtender("wwipg34i.dll") Version 14006 Dec 4, 2001 Fixed a small bug where the ipGetLastError function did not return the correct error code. Version 44010 June 10, 2009 The IP Grabber extender has been updated to use the "44I" interface specifications. This was done to allow access to the improved interface for returning arrays to WIL. Although currently unused, this capability opens the possibility of further improving the extender to return lists as arrays, rather than delimited strings. WinBatch 2004F or newer is required to use this version of the IP Grabber extender. Please update all scripts' calls to AddExtender() to refer to "wwipg44i.DLL" instead of "wwipg34i.DLL". New functions ipMacAddrFirstRaw Returns the MAC address of the first Ethernet adapter, as a raw string of hexadecimal numbers. The returned string always contains exactly 12 characters. ipMacAddrAllRaw Returns a TAB delimited list of MAC address of all Ethernet adapters, as strings of hexadecimal numbers. The TAB delimited list is formatted so that the Item functions (ItemCount, ItemExtract, and ItemRemove) work correctly. Each substring always contains exactly 12 characters. ipMacAddrFirstFmt Returns the MAC address of the first Ethernet adapter, as a formatted string of hexadecimal numbers. The returned string always contains exactly 17 characters. ipMacAddrAllFmt Returns a TAB delimited list of MAC address of all Ethernet adapters, as strings of hexadecimal numbers. The TAB delimited list is formatted so that the Item functions (ItemCount, ItemExtract, and ItemRemove) work correctly. Each substring always contains exactly 17 characters. Bug Fixes and Miscellaneous Improvements 1) Fixed a small bug where the ipVersion function required a completely unused argument, to match its signature in the Command Extension Table. As demonstrated in the included test scripts, it is now possible to call ipVersion() without any arguments, as is the case with the comparable function defined in all other extenders. 2) Fixed typographical errors in a couple of error messages. 3) Moved several large blocks of data from the stack frame to the local heap, to reduce the stack footprint of the associated functions. Version 44011 september 07, 2011 Fix system error number reporting problem in the ipPing function. Rewrote the implementation of the ipMacAddrFirstRaw, ipMacAddrAllRaw, ipMacAddrFirstFmt, and ipMacAddrAllFmt functions to address numerous issues. Ported extender to 64-bit.
