NAME

netconfig - network configuration data base 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/netconfig 

DESCRIPTION

Thefile defines a list of``transport names'' describing their semantics and protocol.InFx ,this file is only used by the RPC library code.

Entries have the following format:

network_id semantics flags family protoname device libraries

Entries consist of the following fields:

network_id
The name of the transport described.
semantics
Describes the semantics of the transport.This can be one of:

tpi_clts
Connectionless transport.
tpi_cots
Connection-oriented transport
tpi_cots_ord
Connection-oriented, ordered transport.
tpi_raw
A raw connection.

flags
This field is either blank (specified by``- '' or contains a``v'' meaning visible to thegetnetconfig(3)function.
family
The protocol family of the transport.This is currently one of:

inet6
The IPv6(PF_INET6)family of protocols.
inet
The IPv4(PF_INET)family of protocols.
loopback
ThePF_LOCALprotocol family.

protoname
The name of the protocol used for this transport.Can currently be eitherudp tcpor empty.
device
This field is always empty inFx .
libraries
This field is always empty inFx .

The order of entries in this file will determine which transport willbe preferred by the RPC library code, given a match on a specifiednetwork type.For example, if a sample network config file would look like this:

udp6       tpi_clts      v     inet6    udp     -       -tcp6       tpi_cots_ord  v     inet6    tcp     -       -udp        tpi_clts      v     inet     udp     -       -tcp        tpi_cots_ord  v     inet     tcp     -       -rawip      tpi_raw       -     inet      -      -       -local      tpi_cots_ord  -     loopback  -      -       -

then using the network typeudpin calls to the RPC library function (seerpc(3))will make the code first tryudp6 and thenudp

getnetconfig(3)and associated functions will parse this file and return structures ofthe following format:

struct netconfig {    char *nc_netid;              /* Network ID */    unsigned long nc_semantics;  /* Semantics (see below) */    unsigned long nc_flag;       /* Flags (see below) */    char *nc_protofmly;          /* Protocol family */    char *nc_proto;              /* Protocol name */    char *nc_device;             /* Network device pathname (unused) */    unsigned long nc_nlookups;   /* Number of lookup libs (unused) */    char **nc_lookups;           /* Names of the libraries (unused) */    unsigned long nc_unused[9];  /* reserved */};
