How exactly should one go about extracting the list of workgroups for
the 'smb://' URL? For example right now I do:

1) Broadcast for MSBROWSE name
2) Reverse Lookup on IP Address of response to extact called name
3) Connect to IPC$ through CalledName<20> but if that fails connect
4) Issue NetServerEnum2 with serverTypes = 0x80000000

Is this correct? On my network I see three responses to the initial
MSBROWSE lookup and Win2K doesn't seem to respond to
querying 0x80000000 for SRV_TYPE_DOMAIN_ENUM.
