Chapter 11

Transport Selection and Name-to-Address Mapping

This chapter describes selecting transports and resolving network addresses. This chapter further describes interfaces that enable you to specify the available communication protocols for an application. The chapter also explains additional interfaces that provide direct mapping of names to network addresses.

Note - In this chapter, the terms network and transport are used interchangeably. The terms refer to the programmatic interface that conforms to the transport layer of the OSI Reference Mode. The term network is also used to refer to the physical collection of computers that are connected through some electronic medium.
