Have you tried using unit netdb from package fcl-net? It doesn't support
Windows (and some other platforms yet), but it should work for Unix
targets. I believe that the two approaches for finding out the domain are
either getting it from the DNS or having it specified in /etc/resolv (and
both are used by unit netdb - search for DefaultDomainList).
