NAME
net_protocol_walk - step through the list of registered network protocols SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/neti.h> net_data_t *net_protocol_walk(net_data_t net); INTERFACE LEVEL
Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI). PARAMETERS
net value returned from a successful call to net_protocol_lookup(9F). DESCRIPTION
The net_protocol_walk() function walks through all of the network protocols that have been registered with this interface. The initial call to net_protocol_walk() should be made by passing in NULL as the value for net. When this function returns NULL, the end of the list has been reached. A caller of net_protocol_walk() is required to walk through the entire list of network protocols, until NULL is returned or, when finished with using the value returned, pass it into a call to net_protocol_release(9F). RETURN VALUES
The net_protocol_walk() function returns NULL when the end of the list is returned. Otherwise, it returns a non-NULL value as a token for being passed into other function calls within this interface. CONTEXT
The net_protocol_walk() function may be called from user, kernel, or interrupt context. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
net_protocol_lookup - locate an implementation of a network layer protocol SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/neti.h> net_data_t net_protocol_lookup(netid_t id, const char *protocol); INTERFACE LEVEL
Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI). PARAMETERS
id network instance identifier. family name of the network protocol to find. DESCRIPTION
The net_protocol_lookup() function attempts to locate a data structure that defines what capabilities it is exporting through this inter- face. The value returned by this call is guaranteed to be valid until it is passed into a call to net_protocol_release(9F), after which it should no longer be treated as valid. The protocol must be a registered name of a network protocol that has been registered. The symbols NHF_INET and NHF_INET6 should be passed to net_protocol_lookup() as the protocol name to gain access to either IPv4 or IPv6 respectively. RETURN VALUES
The net_protocol_lookup() function returns NULL if it does not find any knowledge about the network protocol referenced. Otherwise, it returns a value that can be used with other calls in this framework. CONTEXT
The net_protocol_lookup() function may be called from user, kernel, or interrupt context. ATTRIBUTES
