brlapi_connectionSettings_t - Settings structure for BrlAPI connection.
char * auth
char * host
This structure holds every parameter needed to connect to BrlAPI: which file the authorization key can be found in and which computer to connect to.
libbrlapi will read authorization key from file /etc/brlapi.key and connect to the machine called foo, on the default TCP port.
lets directly enter an IP address instead of a machine name.
lets libbrlapi connect to the local computer, on port BRLAPI_SOCKETPORTNUM+1
For security reasons, libbrlapi has to get authorized to connect to the BrlAPI server. This can be done via a secret key, for instance. This is the path to the file which holds it; it will hence have to be readable by the application.
Setting NULL defaults it to local installation setup or to the content of the BRLAPI_AUTH environment variable, if it exists.
This tells where the BrlAPI server resides: it might be listening on another computer, on any TCP port. It should look like foo:1, which means TCP port number BRLAPI_SOCKETPORTNUM+1 on computer called foo.
Note:Please check that resolving this name works before complaining
Settings NULL defaults it to localhost, using the local installations default TCP port, or to the content of the BRLAPI_HOST environment variable, if it exists.
