Intermediate-Level Routines

The intermediate level interface of RPC enables you to you control details. Programs written at these lower levels are more complicated but run more efficiently. The intermediate level enables you to specify the transport to use. Intermediate-Level Interface describes the use of these routines and code samples.

Table 2–3 RPC Routines—Intermediate Level

Similar to clnt_tp_create() but enables the programmer to specify the maximum time allowed


Creates a server handle for the specified transport 

clnt_call() ()
