Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 NSAPI Programmer's Guide


The session_maxdns function resolves the IP address of the client associated with a specified session into its DNS name. It 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, seeChapter 2, SAFs in the magnus.conf File


char *session_maxdns(Session *sn);


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 as the one passed to your SAF.
