The krb5_address structure holds a address that can be used in Kerberos API calls. There are help functions to set and extract address information of the address.

The krb5_addresses structure holds a set of krb5_address:es.

krb5_sockaddr2address stores a address a "struct sockaddr" sa in the krb5_address addr.

krb5_sockaddr2port extracts a port (if possible) from a "struct sockaddr" sa.

krb5_addr2sockaddr sets the struct sockaddr sockaddr from addr and port. Sa_size should be initially contain the size of the sa, and after the call, it will contain the actual length of the address.

krb5_max_sockaddr_size returns the max size of the struct sockaddr that the Kerberos library will return.

krb5_sockaddr_uninteresting returns TRUE for all sa that for that the kerberos library thinks are uninteresting. One example are link local addresses.

krb5_h_addr2sockaddr initializes a "struct sockaddr" sa from af and the "struct hostent" (see gethostbyname(3)) h_addr_list component. Sa_size should be initially contain the size of the sa, and after the call, it will contain the actual length of the address. sa argument.

krb5_h_addr2addr works like krb5_h_addr2sockaddr with the exception that it operates on a krb5_address instead of a struct sockaddr

krb5_anyaddr fills in a "struct sockaddr" sa that can be used to
.Xf bind 3 to. Sa_size should be initially contain the size of the sa, and after the call, it will contain the actual length of the address.

krb5_print_address prints the address in addr to the a string string that have the length len. If ret_len if not NULL, it will be filled in length of the string.

krb5_parse_address Returns the resolving a hostname in string to the krb5_addresses addresses.

krb5_address_order compares to addresses addr1 and addr2 so that it can be used for sorting addresses. If the addresses are the same address krb5_address_order will be return 0.

krb5_address_compare compares the addresses addr1 and addr2. returns TRUE if the two addresses are the same.

krb5_address_search checks if the address addr is a member of the address set list addrlist.

krb5_free_address frees the data stored in the address that is alloced with any of the krb5_address functions.

krb5_free_addresses frees the data stored in the addresses that is alloced with any of the krb5_address functions.

krb5_copy_address copies the content of address inaddr to outaddr.

krb5_copy_addresses copies the content of the address list inaddr to outaddr.

krb5_append_addresses adds the set of addresses in source to dest. While copying the addresses, duplicates are also sorted out.

krb5_make_addrport allocates and creates an krb5_address in res of type KRB5_ADDRESS_ADDRPORT from ( addr, port).
