NAME

cldap_open - LDAP connectionless communication preparation  

SYNOPSIS

cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ]

#include <lber.h>
#include <ldap.h>

LDAP *cldap_open(char *host, int port);  

PARAMETERS

host The name of the host on which the LDAP server is running.

port The port number to connect.

 

DESCRIPTION

The cldap_open() function is called to prepare for connectionless LDAP communication (over udp(7P)). It allocates an LDAP structure which is passed to future search requests.

If the default IANA-assigned port of 389 is desired, LDAP_PORT should be specified for port.
 host can contain a space-separated list of hosts or addresses to try. cldap_open() returns a pointer to an LDAP structure, which should be passed to subsequent calls to cldap_search_s(3LDAP), cldap_setretryinfo(3LDAP), and cldap_close(3LDAP). Certain fields in the LDAP structure can be set to indicate size limit, time limit, and how aliases are handled during operations. See ldap_open(3LDAP) and <ldap.h> for more details.  

ERRORS

If an error occurs, cldap_open() will return NULL and errno will be set appropriately.
