NAME

lwres_lwpacket_renderheader, lwres_lwpacket_parseheader - lightweight resolver packet handling functions

CONTENTS

Synopsis

SYNOPSIS

#include <lwres/lwpacket.h>

lwres_result_t lwres_lwpacket_renderheader(lwres_buffer_t *b, lwres_lwpacket_t *pkt);

lwres_result_t lwres_lwpacket_parseheader(lwres_buffer_t *b, lwres_lwpacket_t *pkt);

"DESCRIPTION"

These functions rely on a struct lwres_lwpacket which is defined in lwres/lwpacket.h.


typedef struct lwres_lwpacket lwres_lwpacket_t;


struct lwres_lwpacket {
lwres_uint32_tlength;
lwres_uint16_tversion;
lwres_uint16_tpktflags;
lwres_uint32_tserial;
lwres_uint32_topcode;
lwres_uint32_tresult;
lwres_uint32_trecvlength;
lwres_uint16_tauthtype;
lwres_uint16_tauthlength;
};



The elements of this structure are:

-->
length the overall packet length, including the entire packet header. This field is filled in by the lwres_gabn_*() and lwres_gnba_*() calls.
version
the header format. There is currently only one format, LWRES_LWPACKETVERSION_0. This field is filled in by the lwres_gabn_*() and lwres_gnba_*() calls.
pktflags
library-defined flags for this packet: for instance whether the packet is a request or a reply. Flag values can be set, but not defined by the caller. This field is filled in by the application wit the exception of the LWRES_LWPACKETFLAG_RESPONSE bit, which is set by the library in the lwres_gabn_*() and lwres_gnba_*() calls.
serial is set by the requestor and is returned in all replies. If two or more packets from the same source have the same serial number and are from the same source, they are assumed to be duplicates and the latter ones may be dropped. This field must be set by the application.
opcode indicates the operation. Opcodes between 0x00000000 and 0x03ffffff are reserved for use by the lightweight resolver library. Opcodes between 0x04000000 and 0xffffffff are application defined. This field is filled in by the lwres_gabn_*() and lwres_gnba_*() calls.
result is only valid for replies. Results between 0x04000000 and 0xffffffff are application defined. Results between 0x00000000 and 0x03ffffff are reserved for library use. This field is filled in by the lwres_gabn_*() and lwres_gnba_*() calls.
recvlength
is the maximum buffer size that the receiver can handle on requests and the size of the buffer needed to satisfy a request when the buffer is too large for replies. This field is supplied by the application.
authtype
defines the packet level authentication that is used. Authorisation types between 0x1000 and 0xffff are application defined and types between 0x0000 and 0x0fff are reserved for library use. Currently these are not used and must be zero.
authlen
gives the length of the authentication data. Since packet authentication is currently not used, this must be zero.
The following opcodes are currently defined:
NOOP Success is always returned and the packet contents are echoed. The lwres_noop_*() functions should be used for this type.
GETADDRSBYNAME
returns all known addresses for a given name. The lwres_gabn_*() functions should be used for this type.
GETNAMEBYADDR
return the hostname for the given address. The lwres_gnba_*() functions should be used for this type.
lwres_lwpacket_renderheader() transfers the contents of lightweight resolver packet structure lwres_lwpacket_t *pkt in network byte order to the lightweight resolver buffer, *b.

lwres_lwpacket_parseheader() performs the converse operation. It transfers data in network byte order from buffer *b to resolver packet *pkt. The contents of the buffer b should correspond to a lwres_lwpacket_t.

"RETURN VALUES"

Successful calls to lwres_lwpacket_renderheader() and lwres_lwpacket_parseheader() return LWRES_R_SUCCESS. If there is insufficient space to copy data between the buffer *b and lightweight resolver packet *pkt both functions return LWRES_R_UNEXPECTEDEND.
