t_rcvconnect(3C)

Name

t_rcvconnect - receive the confirmation from a connection request

Synopsis

#include <xti.h>

int t_rcvconnect(int fd, struct t_call *call);

Description

This routine is part of the XTI interfaces which evolved from the TLI interfaces. XTI represents the future evolution of these interfaces. However, TLI interfaces are supported for compatibility. When using a TLI routine that has the same name as an XTI routine, the tiuser.h header file must be used. Refer to the TLI COMPATIBILITY section for a description of differences between the two interfaces.

This function enables a calling transport user to determine the status of a previously sent connection request and is used in conjunction with t_connect(3C) to establish a connection in asynchronous mode, and to complete a synchronous t_connect(3C) call that was interrupted by a signal. The connection will be established on successful completion of this function.

The argument fd identifies the local transport endpoint where communication will be established, and call contains information associated with the newly established connection. The argument call points to a t_call structure which contains the following members:

struct netbuf addr;
struct netbuf opt;
struct netbuf udata;
int sequence;

In call, addr returns the protocol address associated with the responding transport endpoint, opt presents any options associated with the connection, udata points to optional user data that may be returned by the destination transport user during connection establishment, and sequence has no meaning for this function.

The maxlen field of each argument must be set before issuing this function to indicate the maximum size of the buffer for each. However, maxlen can be set to zero, in which case no information to this specific argument is given to the user on the return from t_rcvconnect(). If call is set to NULL, no information at all is returned. By default, t_rcvconnect() executes in synchronous mode and waits for the connection to be established before returning. On return, the addr, opt and udata fields reflect values associated with the connection.

If O_NONBLOCK is set by means of t_open(3C) or fcntl(2), t_rcvconnect() executes in asynchronous mode, and reduces to a poll for existing connection confirmations. If none are available, t_rcvconnect() fails and returns immediately without waiting for the connection to be established. See TNODATA below. In this case, t_rcvconnect() must be called again to complete the connection establishment phase and retrieve the information returned in call.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. Otherwise, a value of –1 is returned and t_errno is set to indicate an error.

VALID STATES

T_OUTCON.

Errors

On failure, t_errno is set to one of the following:

TBADF

The specified file descriptor does not refer to a transport endpoint.

TBUFOVFLW

The number of bytes allocated for an incoming argument (maxlen) is greater than 0 but not sufficient to store the value of that argument, and the connection information to be returned in call will be discarded. The provider's state, as seen by the user, will be changed to T_DATAXFER.

TLOOK

An asynchronous event has occurred on this transport connection and requires immediate attention.

TNODATA

O_NONBLOCK was set, but a connection confirmation has not yet arrived.

TNOTSUPPORT

This function is not supported by the underlying transport provider.

TOUTSTATE

The communications endpoint referenced by fd is not in one of the states in which a call to this function is valid.

TPROTO

This error indicates that a communication problem has been detected between XTI and the transport provider for which there is no other suitable XTI error (t_errno).

TSYSERR

A system error has occurred during execution of this function.

TLI COMPATIBILITY

The XTI and TLI interface definitions have common names but use different header files. This, and other semantic differences between the two interfaces are described in the subsections below.

Interface Header

The XTI interfaces use the header file, xti.h. TLI interfaces should not use this header. They should use the header:

  • #include <tiuser.h>

Error Description Values

The t_errno value TPROTO can be set by the XTI interface but not by the TLI interface.

A t_errno value that this routine can return under different circumstances than its XTI counterpart is TBUFOVFLW. It can be returned even when the maxlen field of the corresponding buffer has been set to zero.
