NAME
rpc_svc_reg, rpc_reg, svc_reg, svc_unreg, svc_auth_reg, xprt_register, xprt_unregister -- library routines for registering servers
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <rpc/rpc.h> bool_t rpc_reg(const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t versnum, const rpcproc_t procnum, const char *(*procname)(), const xdrproc_t inproc, const xdrproc_t outproc, const char *nettype); int svc_reg(const SVCXPRT *xprt, const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t versnum, const void (*dispatch(struct svc_req *, SVCXPRT *), const struct netconfig *netconf); void svc_unreg(const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t versnum); int svc_auth_reg(const int cred_flavor, const enum auth_stat (*handler(struct svc_req *, struct rpc_msg *))); bool_t xprt_register(const SVCXPRT *xprt); void xprt_unregister(const SVCXPRT *xprt);
DESCRIPTION
These routines are a part of the RPC library which allows the RPC servers to register themselves with rpcbind (see rpcbind(8)), and associate the given program and version number with the dispatch function. When the RPC server receives a RPC request, the library invokes the dispatch rou- tine with the appropriate arguments.
ROUTINES
See rpc(3) for the definition of the SVCXPRT data structure. rpc_reg() Register program prognum, procedure procname, and version versnum with the RPC service package. If a request arrives for program prognum, version versnum, and procedure procnum, procname is called with a pointer to its parameter(s); procname should return a pointer to its static result(s); inproc is the XDR function used to decode the parameters while outproc is the XDR function used to encode the results. Procedures are registered on all available transports of the class nettype. See rpc(3). This routine returns 0 if the registration succeeded, -1 otherwise. svc_reg() Associates prognum and versnum with the service dispatch proce- dure, dispatch. If netconf is NULL, the service is not registered with the rpcbind(8) service. If netconf is non-zero, then a map- ping of the triple [ prognum, versnum, netconf->nc_netid] to xprt->xp_ltaddr is established with the local rpcbind service. The svc_reg() routine returns 1 if it succeeds, and 0 otherwise. svc_unreg() Remove from the rpcbind service, all mappings of the triple [ prognum, versnum, all-transports ] to network address and all map- pings within the RPC service package of the double [ prognum, versnum] to dispatch routines. svc_auth_reg() Registers the service authentication routine handler with the dis- patch mechanism so that it can be invoked to authenticate RPC requests received with authentication type cred_flavor. This interface allows developers to add new authentication types to their RPC applications without needing to modify the libraries. Service implementors usually do not need this routine. Typical service application would call svc_auth_reg() after regis- tering the service and prior to calling svc_run(). When needed to process an RPC credential of type cred_flavor, the handler proce- dure will be called with two parameters struct svc_req *rqst, and struct rpc_msg * msg, and is expected to return a valid enum auth_stat value. There is no provision to change or delete an authentication handler once registered. The svc_auth_reg() routine returns 0 if the registration is suc- cessful, 1 if cred_flavor already has an authentication handler registered for it, and -1 otherwise. xprt_register() After RPC service transport handle xprt is created, it is regis- tered with the RPC service package. This routine modifies the global variable svc_fdset (see rpc_svc_calls(3)). Service imple- mentors usually do not need this routine. xprt_unregister() Before an RPC service transport handle xprt is destroyed, it unregisters itself with the RPC service package. This routine modifies the global variable svc_fdset (see rpc_svc_calls(3)). Service implementors usually do not need this routine.
