Archie server is in fact a Prospero Directory Server, and clients
communicate with it using a protocol with the same name - Prospero:

InterNIC database.

1. looking for information on how to query a pc for system hardware information

I'm not sure where I should post this question. Hopefully you will
look over me this time if this is a cross post or off topic.

What I am looking for is information on how to query a pc and find out
