Initiate a connection on a socket (via a SOCKS server)
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/socket.h> int Rconnect( int s, const struct sockaddr * name, int namelen);
- The descriptor of the socket on which to initiate the connection.
- The name of the socket to connect to for a SOCK_STREAM connection.
- The length of the name, in bytes.
Use the -l socks option to qcc to link against this library.
The Rconnect() function is a cover function for connect() -- the difference is that Rconnect() does its job via a SOCKS server.
For more information about SOCKS and its libraries, see the appendix, SOCKS -- A Basic Firewall.
