The OTCheckNetForNBPName sample demonstrates the use of the Open Transport under Carbon, to search an AppleTalk network for an NBP entity using multiple simultaneous searches to reduce the lookup time. This sample demonstrates how to 1. find the number of AppleTalk zones present by dynamically increasing the buffer size until a kOTBufferOverflowErr is no longer returned. 2. Use multiple lookup request and reply structures in order to reduce the amount of time required to search the network. 3. Use asynchronous lookup requests so that other actions can be taken while performing the lookup. 4. Turn on self send globally 5. Register/deregister an entity with OT.
