SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In sys/socket.h int getpeername "int s" "struct sockaddr * restrict name" "socklen_t * restrict namelen"

DESCRIPTION

The getpeername system call returns the name of the peer connected to socket s. The namelen argument should be initialized to indicate the amount of space pointed to by name. On return it contains the actual size of the name returned (in bytes). The name is truncated if the buffer provided is too small.

RETURN VALUES


.Rv -std getpeername

ERRORS

The call succeeds unless:
[EBADF]
The argument s is not a valid descriptor.
[ECONNRESET]
The connection has been reset by the peer.
[ENOTSOCK]
The argument s is a file, not a socket.
[ENOTCONN]
The socket is not connected.
[ENOBUFS]
Insufficient resources were available in the system to perform the operation.
[EFAULT]
The name argument points to memory not in a valid part of the process address space.
