The BIO_ADDRINFO type is a wrapper for address information types provided on your platform.

BIO_ADDRINFO normally forms a chain of several that can be picked at one by one.

BIO_lookup() looks up a specified host and service, and uses lookup_type to determine what the default address should be if host is NULL.  family, socktype are used to determine what protocol family and protocol should be used for the lookup.  family can be any of AF_INET, AF_INET6, AF_UNIX and AF_UNSPEC, and socktype can be SOCK_STREAM or SOCK_DGRAM. res points at a pointer to hold the start of a BIO_ADDRINFO chain. For the family AF_UNIX, BIO_lookup() will ignore the service parameter and expects the node parameter to hold the path to the socket file.

BIO_ADDRINFO_family() returns the family of the given BIO_ADDRINFO.  The result will be one of the constants AF_INET, AF_INET6 and AF_UNIX.

BIO_ADDRINFO_socktype() returns the socket type of the given BIO_ADDRINFO.  The result will be one of the constants SOCK_STREAM and SOCK_DGRAM.

BIO_ADDRINFO_protocol() returns the protocol id of the given BIO_ADDRINFO.  The result will be one of the constants IPPROTO_TCP and IPPROTO_UDP.

BIO_ADDRINFO_address() returns the underlying BIO_ADDR of the given BIO_ADDRINFO.

BIO_ADDRINFO_next() returns the next BIO_ADDRINFO in the chain from the given one.

BIO_ADDRINFO_free() frees the chain of BIO_ADDRINFO starting with the given one.

Return Values

BIO_lookup() returns 1 on success and 0 when an error occurred, and will leave an error indication on the OpenSSL error stack in that case.

All other functions described here return 0 or NULL when the information they should return isn't available.
