NAME

        atalk - AppleTalk protocol family
 

SYNOPSIS

        #include <sys/types.h>
        #include <netatalk/at.h>
 

DESCRIPTION

        The  AppleTalk  protocol  family  is  a collection of protocols layered
        above the Datagram Delivery Protocol (DDP), and using AppleTalk address
        format. The AppleTalk family may provide SOCK_STREAM (ADSP), SOCK_DGRAM
        (DDP), SOCK_RDM (ATP), and SOCK_SEQPACKET (ASP). Currently, only DDP is
        implemented  in  the  kernel; ATP and ASP are implemented in user level
        libraries; and ADSP is planned.
 

ADDRESSING

        AppleTalk addresses are three byte quantities, stored in  network  byte
        order.  The  include file <netatalk/at.h> defines the AppleTalk address
        format.
 
        Sockets in the AppleTalk protocol  family  use  the  following  address
        structure:
 
        struct sockaddr_at {
            short sat_family;
            u_char sat_port;
            struct at_addr sat_addr;
            char sat_zero[ 8 ];
        };
 
bind(2).  The node for bind must
        always be ATADDR_ANYNODE: ‘‘this node.’’ The net may  be  ATADDR_ANYNET
        or  ATADDR_LATENET.   ATADDR_ANYNET  coresponds to the machine’s ‘‘pri‐
        mary’’ address  (the  first  configured).   ATADDR_LATENET  causes  the
        address  in  outgoing  packets  to be determined when a packet is sent,
        i.e. determined late.  ATADDR_LATENET  is  equivalent  to  opening  one
        socket  for each network interface. The port of a socket and either the
