            WSAQUERYSET networkInfo;
            memset(&networkInfo, 0, sizeof(networkInfo));
            networkInfo.dwSize = sizeof(networkInfo);
            networkInfo.lpszServiceInstanceName = (LPWSTR)name.utf16();
            networkInfo.dwNameSpace = 15;
            if (WSASetService(&networkInfo, RNRSERVICE_REGISTER, 0) == SOCKET_ERROR)
                qDebug() << "WSASetService(RNRSERVICE_REGISTER) returned" << WSAGetLastError();
