PROTOCOL_INFO info

The PROTOCOL_INFO structure contains information about a protocol.

typedef  struct _PROTOCOL_INFO { 

    DWORD  dwServiceFlags; 

    INT  iAddressFamily; 

    INT  iMaxSockAddr; 

    INT  iMinSockAddr; 

    INT  iSocketType; 

    INT  iProtocol; 

    DWORD  dwMessageSize; 

    LPTSTR  lpProtocol; 

} PROTOCOL_INFO; 

 

Members

dwServiceFlags
A set of bit flags that specify the services provided by the protocol. One or more of the following bit flags may be set:

Value

Meaning

XP_CONNECTIONLESS

If this flag is set, the protocol providesconnectionless (datagram) service. If this flag is clear, the protocol provides connection-oriented data transfer.

XP_GUARANTEED_DELIVERY

If this flag is set, the protocol guarantees that all data sent will reach the intended destination. If this flag is clear, there is no such guarantee.

XP_GUARANTEED_ORDER

If this flag is set, the protocol guarantees that data will arrive in the order in which it was sent. Note that this characteristic does not guarantee delivery of the data, but guarantees only its order. If this flag is clear, the order of data sent is not guaranteed.

XP_MESSAGE_ORIENTED

If this flag is set, the protocol is message-oriented. A message-oriented protocol honors message boundaries. If this flag is clear, the protocol is stream-oriented, and the concept of message boundaries is irrelevant.

XP_PSEUDO_STREAM

If this flag is set, the protocol is a message-oriented protocol that ignores message boundaries for all receive operations.

This optional capability is useful when you do not want the protocol to frame messages. An application that requires stream-oriented characteristics can open a socket with type SOCK_STREAM for transport protocols that support this functionality, regardless of the value of iSocketType.

XP_GRACEFUL_CLOSE

If this flag is set, the protocol supports two-phase close operations, also known as “graceful” close operations. If this flag is clear, the protocol supports only abortive close operations.

XP_EXPEDITED_DATA

If this flag is set, the protocol supports expedited data, also known as “urgent data.”

XP_CONNECT_DATA

If this flag is set, the protocol supports connect data.

XP_DISCONNECT_DATA

If this flag is set, the protocol supports disconnect data.

XP_SUPPORTS_BROADCAST

If this flag is set, the protocol supports a broadcast mechanism.

XP_SUPPORTS_MULTICAST

If this flag is set, the protocol supports a multicast mechanism.

XP_BANDWIDTH_ALLOCATION

If this flag is set, the protocol supports a mechanism for allocating a guaranteed bandwidth to an application.

XP_FRAGMENTATION

If this flag isset, the protocol supports message fragmentation; physical network MTU is hidden from applications.

XP_ENCRYPTS

If this flag is set, the protocol supports data encryption.

iAddressFamily
Specifies the value to pass as the af parameter when you call the socket function to open a socket for the protocol. This address family value uniquely defines the structure of Protocol addresses, also known as SOCKADDRs, used by the protocol.
iMaxSockAddr
Specifies the maximum length of a socket address supported by the protocol.
iMinSockAddr
Specifies the minimum length of a socket address supported by the protocol.
iSocketType
Specifies the value to pass as the type parameter when you call the socket function to open a socket for the protocol.

Note that if XP_PSEUDO_STREAM is set in dwServiceFlags, the application can specify SOCK_STREAM as the type parameter to socket, regardless of the value of iSocketType.

iProtocol
Specifies the value to pass as the protocol parameter when you call the socket function to open a socket for the protocol.
dwMessageSize
Specifies the maximum message size supported by the protocol. This is the maximum size of a message that can be sent from or received by the host. For protocols that do not support message framing, the actual maximum size of a message that can be sent to a given address may be less than this value.

The following special message size values are defined:

Value

Meaning

0

The protocol is stream-oriented; the concept of message size is not relevant.

0xFFFFFFFF

The protocol is message-oriented, but there is no maximum message size.

lpProtocol
Points to a zero-terminated string that supplies a name for the protocol; for example, “SPX2.”
