Default LAN computer address

Hi Rod,

I want to set up a simple file exchange with the other computers on the same LAN. (Peer-to-Peer, no server involved)

How can my VB.net program get the path information to write to a shared folder (eg SharedDocs) on each of the computers on the network,
1. how an I get the computer name of the other machines on the lan to form the UNC path. (which I think would be \\ThatMachine\sharedDocs\myfile.txt)
2. is there a way to access/replicate the "My Network Places" list that Windows Explorer displays ?
