SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -ldat [ library... ]
#include <dat/udat.h>

DAT_RETURN
dat_ep_query (
IN DAT_EP_HANDLE ep_handle,
IN DAT_EP_PARAM_MASK ep_param_mask,
OUT DAT_EP_PARAM *ep_param
)


PARAMETERS


ep_handle
Handle for an instance of the Endpoint.


ep_param_mask
Mask for Endpoint parameters.


ep_param
Pointer to a Consumer-allocated structure that the
Provider fills with Endpoint parameters.


DESCRIPTION


The dat_ep_query() function provides the Consumer parameters, including
attributes and status, of the Endpoint. Consumers pass in a pointer to
Consumer-allocated structures for Endpoint parameters that the Provider
fills.


The ep_param_mask parameter allows Consumers to specify which parameters
to query. The Provider returns values for ep_param_mask requested
parameters. The Provider can return values for any other parameters.


Some of the parameters only have values for certain Endpoint states.
Specifically, the values for remote_ia_address and remote_port_qual are
valid only for Endpoints in the DAT_EP_STATE_PASSIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_ACTIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_TENTATIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_DISCONNECT_PENDING, DAT_EP_STATE_COMPLETION_PENDING, or
DAT_EP_STATE_CONNECTED states. The values of local_port_qual is valid
only for Endpoints in the DAT_EP_STATE_PASSIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_ACTIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING, DAT_EP_STATE_DISCONNECT_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_COMPLETION_PENDING, or DAT_EP_STATE_CONNECTED states, and
might be valid for DAT_EP_STATE_UNCONNECTED, DAT_EP_STATE_RESERVED,
DAT_EP_STATE_TENTATIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING,
DAT_EP_STATE_PASSIVE_CONNECTION_PENDING, and DAT_EP_STATE_UNCONNECTED
states.

RETURN VALUES


DAT_SUCCESS
The operation was successful.


DAT_INVALID_HANDLE
The ep_handle parameter is invalid.


DAT_INVALID_PARAMETER
The ep_param_mask parameter is invalid.
