To establish a server under the inetd server, you can use
COMSTACK cs_createbysocket(int socket, CS_TYPE type, int blocking, int protocol);
socket parameter is an established socket (when
your application is invoked from inetd, the
socket will typically be 0.
The following parameters are identical to the ones for
int cs_bind(COMSTACK handle, void *address, int mode)
Binds a local address to the endpoint. Read about addresses below. The
mode parameter should be either
int cs_listen(COMSTACK handle, char *addr, int *addrlen);
Call this to process incoming events on an endpoint that has been bound in listening mode. It will return 0 to indicate that the connect request has been received, 1 to signal a partial reception, and -1 to indicate an error condition.
COMSTACK cs_accept(COMSTACK handle);
This finalizes the server-side association establishment, after
cs_listen has completed successfully. It returns a new connection
endpoint, which represents the new association. The application will
typically wish to fork off a process to handle the association at this
point, and continue listen for new connections on the old
You can use the call
const char *cs_addrstr(COMSTACK);
on an established connection to retrieve the host-name of the remote host.
You may need to use this function with some care if your name server service is slow or unreliable.
