The Question is:
How does TCP/IP services for OpenVMS allow control of parameters, such as
tcp_time_wait_interval in solaris for example, that affect the time sockets
are kept alive - is this configurable or where can I find the relevant Doco -
Programming for TCP/IP ?
The Answer is :
Please see the OpenVMS FAQ for pointers to the OpenVMS documentation,
particularly including the TCP/IP Services documentation and the C
The TCP/IP $qio interface and general IP programming considerations
and terminology are documented in the TCP/IP Services manuals, while
the C RTL documentation includes details of socket programming.
The most current C RTL documentation is included with the OpenVMS
manuals, while older RTL documentation and the C compiler itself
has documentation at the OpenVMS commercial products website.
URLs for these sites are included in the OpenVMS FAQ. (While
the OpenVMS Wizard could include pointers here, these URLs are
expected to change and the exclusion of references here means
that only the FAQ will need to be kept current. The FAQ also
has C programming tips, and a wealth of related discussions.)
