t_listen(3xti)															    t_listen(3xti)

Name
       t_listen - listen for a connect request

Syntax
       #include <xti.h>

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

Arguments
       fd	 Identifies the local transport endpoint where the connect indication arrived.

       call	 Contains  information	describing the connect indication. The call points to a t_call structure which contains the following mem-
		 bers:
		 struct netbuf addr;
		 struct netbuf opt;
		 struct netbuf udata;
		 int sequence;

		 The members of the t_call structure have the following meanings:

		 addr	     Returns the protocol address of the calling transport user.

		 udata	     Returns any user data sent by the caller on the connect request.

		 sequence    Identifies the returned connect indication with a	unique number. The value of sequence enables the  user	to  listen
			     for multiple connect indications before responding to any of them.

		 Because  this	function  returns  values for the addr, opt, and udata fields of call, the maxlen field of each must be set before
		 issuing the to indicate the maximum size of the buffer for each.

Description
       This function listens for a connect request from a calling transport user. The fd identifies the local  transport  endpoint  where  connect
       indications arrive. On return, call contains information describing the connect indication.

       By  default,  executes in synchronous mode and waits for a connect indiction to arrive before returning to the user. However, if O_NONBLOCK
       is set by means of or executes asynchronously, reducing to a poll for existing connect indications. If none are available,  it  returns	-1
       and sets to [TNODATA].

Return Values
       Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. On failure, a value of -1 is returned, and t_errno is set to indicate the error.

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

       [TOUTSTATE]	   The function was issued in the wrong sequence on the transport endpoint referenced by fd.

			   call is discarded. The value of sequence returned can be used to do a

       [TNODATA]	   O_NONBLOCK was set, but no connect indications had been queued.

       [TLOOK]		   An asynchronous event has occurred on the transport endpoint and requires immediate attention.

       [TNOTSUPPORT]	   This function is not supported by the underlying transport provider.

t_connect(3xti) 														   t_connect(3xti)

Name
       t_connect - establish a connection with another transport user

Syntax
       #include <xti.h>

       int t_connect(fd, sndcall, rcvcall)
       int fd;
       struct t_call *sndcall;
       struct t_call *rcvcall;

Arguments
       fd	 Identifies the local transport endpoint where communications is established.

       sndcall	 Specifies information needed by the transport provider to establish a connection.

       rcvcall	 Specifies information that is associated with the newly established connection.

		 The sndcall and rcvcall point to a t_call structure that contains the following members:
		 struct netbuf addr;
		 struct netbuf opt;
		 struct netbuf udata;
		 int sequence;

Description
       This  function  enables	a  transport user to request a connection to the specified destination transport user. This function can be issued
       only in the T_IDLE state.

       In sndcall, the argument addr specifies the protocol address of the destination transport user. The opt argument presents any protocol-spe-
       cific information that might be needed by the transport provider. The udata argument points to optional user data that may be passed to the
       destination transport user during connection establishment. The sequence argument has no meaning for this function.

       On return in rcvcall, addr argument returns the protocol address associated with  the  responding  transport  endpoint.	The  opt  argument
       presents  any  protocol-specific  information  associated  with the connection. The udata argument points to optional user data that may be
       returned by the destination transport user during connection establishment. The sequence argument has no meaning for this function.

       The opt argument permits users to define the options that can be passed to the transport provider. These options are specific to the under-
       lying protocol of the transport provider. The user can choose not to negotiate protocol options by setting the len field of opt to zero. In
       this case, the provider may use default options.

       -------------------------------------------------

       If used, sndcall->opt.buf structure must point to the corresponding options structures (isoco_options, isocl_options or	tcp_options).  The
       maxlen and buf fields of the netbuf structure pointed by rcvcalladdr and rcvcall->opt must be set before the call.

       The udata argument enables the caller to pass user data to the destination transport and receive user data from the destination user during
       connection establishment. However, the amount of user data must not exceed the limits supported by the transport provider  as  returned	in
       the connect field of the info argument of If the len of udata is zero in sndcall, no data are sent to the destination transport user.

       On  return,  the addr, opt, and udata fields of rcvcall updates to reflect values associated with the connection. Thus, the maxlen field of
       each argument must be set before issuing this function to indicate the maximum size of the buffer for each. However, rcvcall can  be  NULL,
       in which case no information is given to the user on return from

       By  default,  executes in synchronous mode and waits for the destination user's response before returning control to the local user. A suc-
       cessful return (that is, a return value of zero) indicates that the requested connection has been established. However,	if  O_NONBLOCK	is
       set  by	means of or executes in asynchronous mode. In this case, the call waits for the remote user's response but returns control immedi-
       ately to the local user and returns -1 with t_errno  set to [TNODATA] to indicate that the connection has not yet been established. In this
       way,  the  function simply initiates the connection establishment procedure by sending a connect request to the destination transport user.
       The function is used in conjunction with to determine the status of the requested connection.

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 the error.

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

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

       [TOUTSTATE]	   The function was issued in the wrong sequence.

       [TNODATA]	   O_NONBLOCK was set, so the function successfully initiated the connection establishment procedure but did not wait  for
			   a response from the remote user.

       [TACCES] 	   The user does not have permission to use the specified address or options.

       [TBADOPT]	   The specified protocol options were in an incorrect format or contained illegal information.

       [TBADADDR]	   The specified protocol address was in an incorrect format or contained illegal information.

       [TBADDATA]	   The amount of user data specified was not within the bounds allowed by the transport provider.

       [TBUFOVFLW]	   The	number	of bytes allocated for an incoming argument is not sufficient to store the value of that argument. If exe-
			   cuted in synchronous mode, the provider's state, as seen by the user, changes to T_DATAXFER, and the connect indication
			   information to be returned in rcvcall is discarded.

       [TLOOK]		   An asynchronous event has occurred on this transport endpoint and requires immediate attention.

       [TNOTSUPPORT]	   This function is not supported by the underlying transport provider.

       [TSYSERR]	   A system error has occurred during execution of this function.
