- configure transport providers for use by sockets
/sbin/soconfig -d dir
/sbin/soconfig -f file
/sbin/soconfig family type protocol [module | path]
The soconfig utility configures the transport provider driver for use with sockets. It specifies how the family, type, and protocol parameters in the socket(3SOCKET) call are mapped to the name of a transport provider such as /dev/tcp. This utility can be used to add an additional mapping or remove a previous mapping.
The following options are supported:
Set up the soconfig configuration for each driver according to the information stored in the files in dir.
Set up the soconfig configuration for each driver according to the information stored in file. A soconfig file consists of lines of at least the first three fields listed below, separated by spaces:
family type protocol [module | path]
These fields are described in the OPERANDS section below.
An example of file can be found in the EXAMPLES section below.
The following operands are supported:
The protocol family as listed in the /usr/include/sys/socket.h file, expressed as an integer.
The socket type as listed in the /usr/include/sys/socket.h file, expressed as an integer.
The protocol number as specified in the family-specific include file, expressed as an integer. For example, for AF_INET this number is specified in /usr/include/netinet/in.h. An unspecified protocol number is denoted with the value zero.
The module name or path name of a device that corresponds to the transport provider, such as tcp or /dev/tcp. Modules must reside in kernel/socketmod. A device name must begin with /dev. If this parameter is specified, the configuration will be added for the specified family, type, and protocol. If this parameter is not specified, the configuration will be removed.
Example 1 Using soconfig
The following example sets up a module for family AF_INET and type SOCK_STREAM:
example# soconfig 2 2 0 tcp
The following example sets up /dev/tcp for family AF_INET and type SOCK_STREAM:
example# soconfig 2 2 0 /dev/tcp
The following is a sample file used with the -f option. Comment lines begin with a hash mark (#):
# Family Type Protocol Module | Path 2 2 0 tcp 2 2 6 tcp 2 1 0 udp 2 1 17 udp 1 2 0 /dev/ticotsord 1 1 0 /dev/ticlts 2 4 0 icmp
Directory containing files with mappings from sockets to transport providers.
