RPC_SVC_REG(3NSL) Networking Services Library Functions RPC_SVC_REG(3NSL)


NAME


rpc_svc_reg, rpc_reg, svc_reg, svc_unreg, svc_auth_reg, xprt_register,
xprt_unregister - library routines for registering servers

DESCRIPTION


These routines are a part of the RPC library which allows the RPC servers
to register themselves with rpcbind() (see rpcbind(1M)), 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
routine with the appropriate arguments.

Routines


See rpc(3NSL) for the definition of the SVCXPRT data structure.

#include <rpc/rpc.h>


bool_t rpc_reg(const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t versnum, const
rpcproc_t procnum, char * (*procname)(), const xdrproc_t inproc, const
xdrproc_t outproc, const char *nettype);

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). The arg parameter to procname is a pointer
to the (decoded) procedure argument. 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(3NSL). This routine returns
0 if the registration succeeded, -1 otherwise.


int svc_reg(const SVCXPRT *xprt, const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t
versnum, const void (*dispatch)(), const struct netconfig *netconf);

Associates prognum and versnum with the service dispatch procedure,
dispatch. If netconf is NULL, the service is not registered with the
rpcbind service. For example, if a service has already been
registered using some other means, such as inetd (see inetd(1M)), it
will not need to be registered again. If netconf is non-zero, then a
mapping of the triple [prognum, versnum, netconf->] to xprt->
xp_ltaddr is established with the local rpcbind service.

The svc_reg() routine returns 1 if it succeeds, and 0 otherwise.


void svc_unreg(const rpcprog_t prognum, const rpcvers_t versnum);

Remove from the rpcbind service, all mappings of the triple [prognum,
versnum, all-transports] to network address and all mappings within
the RPC service package of the double [prognum, versnum] to dispatch
routines.


int svc_auth_reg(const int cred_flavor, const enum auth_stat
(*handler)());

Registers the service authentication routine handler with the
dispatch 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
registering the service and prior to calling svc_run(). When needed
to process an RPC credential of type cred_flavor, the handler
procedure will be called with two parameters (struct svc_req *rqst,
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
successful, 1 if cred_flavor already has an authentication handler
registered for it, and -1 otherwise.


void xprt_register(const SVCXPRT *xprt);

After RPC service transport handle xprt is created, it is registered
with the RPC service package. This routine modifies the global
variables svc_fdset and svc_pollfd (see rpc_svc_calls(3NSL)).
Service implementors usually do not need this routine.


void xprt_unregister(const SVCXPRT *xprt);

Before an RPC service transport handle xprt is destroyed, it
unregisters itself with the RPC service package. This routine
modifies the global variables svc_fdset and svc_pollfd (see
rpc_svc_calls(3NSL)). Service implementors usually do not need this
routine.
