Hacking Breakthrough

I am always on Linux…. always. I use Linux DC++ too. There is an annoying bug in the app. It does not connect to a hub if you give its name as the connection string but it connects via an ip address. So basically the app can not resolve the name given to the corresponding ip address. But smbd can open window shares on my pc by names… so i thot a hack wud do the trick So i went thru thr LinucDC sourcecode and i made a this system call “nmblookup -S %s|grep 10.0.|grep -v 10.0.255.255|head -n1|cut -d’ ‘  -f1” . And it woked fine.
