ISC Internet Systems Consortium, Inc. lwres_getnameinfo 3 BIND9 2000 2001 2004 2005 2007 2014 2015 2016 2018 2019 2020 Internet Systems Consortium, Inc. ("ISC") lwres_getnameinfo lightweight resolver socket address structure to hostname and service name #include <lwres/netdb.h> int lwres_getnameinfo const struct sockaddr * sa size_t salen char * host size_t hostlen char * serv size_t servlen int flags


This function is equivalent to the getnameinfo3 function defined in RFC2133. lwres_getnameinfo() returns the hostname for the struct sockaddr sa which is salen bytes long. The hostname is of length hostlen and is returned via *host. The maximum length of the hostname is 1025 bytes: NI_MAXHOST.

The name of the service associated with the port number in sa is returned in *serv. It is servlen bytes long. The maximum length of the service name is NI_MAXSERV - 32 bytes.

The flags argument sets the following bits:


A fully qualified domain name is not required for local hosts. The local part of the fully qualified domain name is returned instead.


Return the address in numeric form, as if calling inet_ntop(), instead of a host name.


A name is required. If the hostname cannot be found in the DNS and this flag is set, a non-zero error code is returned. If the hostname is not found and the flag is not set, the address is returned in numeric form.


The service name is returned as a digit string representing the port number.


Specifies that the service being looked up is a datagram service, and causes getservbyport() to be called with a second argument of "udp" instead of its default of "tcp". This is required for the few ports (512-514) that have different services for UDP and TCP.


lwres_getnameinfo() returns 0 on success or a non-zero error code if an error occurs.


RFC2133, getservbyport3, lwres3, lwres_getnameinfo3, lwres_getnamebyaddr3. lwres_net_ntop3.


RFC2133 fails to define what the nonzero return values of getnameinfo3 are.
