#include <libnbd.h> int nbd_aio_connect ( struct nbd_handle *h, const struct sockaddr *addr, socklen_t addrlen );
Begin connecting to the NBD server. The
addrlen parameters specify the address of the socket to connect to.
You can check if the connection attempt is still underway by calling nbd_aio_is_connecting(3). If nbd_set_opt_mode(3) is enabled, the connection is ready for manual option negotiation once nbd_aio_is_negotiating(3) returns true; otherwise, the connection attempt will include the NBD handshake, and is ready for use once nbd_aio_is_ready(3) returns true.
If the call is successful the function returns
-1 is returned.
Refer to "ERROR HANDLING" in libnbd(3) for how to get further details of the error.
The following parameters must not be NULL:
addr. For more information see "Non-NULL parameters" in libnbd(3).
The handle must be newly created, otherwise this call will return an error.
This function first appeared in libnbd 1.0.
If you need to test if this function is available at compile time check if the following macro is defined:
#define LIBNBD_HAVE_NBD_AIO_CONNECT 1
nbd_aio_is_connecting(3), nbd_aio_is_negotiating(3), nbd_aio_is_ready(3), nbd_create(3), nbd_set_opt_mode(3), libnbd(3).
