Function Documentation

int ACE::bind_port ACE_HANDLE  handle,
ACE_UINT32  ip_addr = INADDR_ANY,
int  address_family = AF_UNSPEC

Bind a new unused port to handle.

int ACE::count_interfaces ACE_HANDLE  handle,
size_t &  how_many

Helper routine for get_ip_interfaces, differs by UNIX platform so put into own subroutine. perform some ioctls to retrieve ifconf list of ifreq structs.

int ACE::get_bcast_addr ACE_UINT32 &  bcast_addr,
const ACE_TCHAR hostname = 0,
ACE_UINT32  host_addr = 0,

Get our broadcast address based on our host_addr. If hostname is non-0 we'll use it to determine our IP address. If handle is not ACE_INVALID_HANDLE then we'll use this to determine our broadcast address, otherwise we'll have to create a socket internally (and free it). Returns -1 on failure and 0 on success.

ACE_HANDLE ACE::get_handle void   ) 

Routine to return a handle from which ioctl requests can be made. Caller must close the handle.

int ACE::get_ip_interfaces size_t &  count,
ACE_INET_Addr *&  addr_array

Return count and array of all configured IP interfaces on this host, rc = 0 on success (count == number of interfaces else -1). Caller is responsible for calling delete [] on addr_array.

int ACE::ipv6_enabled void   ) 

Returns 1 if IPv6 is enabled on the current host; 0 if not. This is an execution-time check. If ACE has not been compiled with ACE_HAS_IPV6, it always returns 0. If ACE_HAS_IPV6 is enabled, this function tries to create a PF_INET6 socket, returning 1 if it succeeds, and 0 if it fails. Caches the result so it only gets checked once.
