session_maxdns() Function

The session_maxdns function resolves the IP address of the client associated with a specified session into its DNS name. This function returns a newly allocated string. You can use session_maxdns to change the numeric IP address into something more readable.

Note –

This function works only if the DNS directive is enabled in the magnus.conf file. For more information, see Appendix B, Alphabetical List of NSAPI Functions and Macros.


char *session_maxdns(Session *sn);

Return Values

A string containing the host name, or NULL if the DNS name cannot be found for the IP address.


Session *sn is the Session.

The Session is the same parameter as the one passed to your SAF.
