CORBA34 — Outgoing local port in Bi-directional IIOP

  • Key: CORBA34-326
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2638
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: In ptc/98-10-11 5.8.1 it says "If a client has not set up any mechanism for
    traditional-style callbacks using a listening socket, then the port entry
    in its IOR must be set to the outgoing connection"s local port (as
    retrieved using the getsockname() sockets API call)". At IOR creation time
    there may be no connection, or there may be many, so the mandated local
    port may be non-existent or ambiguous.

    This topic was discussed on the firewall-rtf list during Feb-Mar 1999 but
    was not raised as an issue.
