GETPEERNAME(2)	    UNIX Programmer's Manual	   GETPEERNAME(2)


NAME
     getpeername - get name of connected peer

SYNOPSIS
     getpeername(s, name, namelen)
     int s;
     struct sockaddr *name;
     int *namelen;

DESCRIPTION
     Getpeername returns the name of the peer connected to socket
     s.  The namelen parameter should be initialized to indicate
     the amount of space pointed to by name.  On return it con-
     tains the actual size of the name returned (in bytes).  The
     name is truncated if the buffer provided is too small.

DIAGNOSTICS
     A 0 is returned if the call succeeds, -1 if it fails.

ERRORS
     The call succeeds unless:

     [EBADF]	    The argument s is not a valid descriptor.

     [ENOTSOCK]     The argument s is a file, not a socket.

     [ENOTCONN]     The socket is not connected.

     [ENOBUFS]	    Insufficient resources were available in the
		    system to perform the operation.

     [EFAULT]	    The name parameter points to memory not in a
		    valid part of the process address space.
