Hi guys,

 The following program is for getting credentials......

 I have some problems facing when run on solaris machine ......

Program is following :---->

#include   <stdio.h>
#include   <stdlib.h>
#include   <sys/socket.h>
#include   <errno.h>
#include   <sys/types.h>
#include   <sys/uio.h>
#include   <signal.h>
#include   <time.h>
#include   <sys/types.h>
#include   <stdlib.h>
#include   <pthread.h>
#include   <sys/param.h>
#include   <sys/cred.h>

ssize_t recv_cred(int, void *, size_t, struct cred *);

  int             fd[2], on, n;
  char            buf[100];
  struct cred    cred;
  if (socketpair(AF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM, 0, fd) < 0)
    perror("Socketpair Error");
  /* must set the socket option on the *receiving* socket */
  on = 1;
  setsockopt(fd[1], 0, LOCAL_CREDS, &on, sizeof(on));
  write(fd[0], "hello, world\n", 13);
  if ( (n = recv_cred(fd[1], buf, sizeof(buf), &cred)) < 0)
    perror("Recv_Cred Error");
  else if (n == 0)
    perror("Recv_Cred, Unexpected EOF");
  buf[n] = 0;                     /* null terminate */
  printf("data: %s", buf);
  if (cred.cr_ngroups == 0)
    printf("[No CREDENTIALS Returned]\n");
      printf(" Real User ID = %d\n", cred.cr_ruid);
      printf(" Real Group ID = %d\n", cred.cr_rgid);
      //      printf(" Login Name = %-*s\n", MAXLOGNAME, cred.cr_login);
      printf(" Effective User ID = %d\n", cred.cr_uid);
      printf(" Effective Group ID = %d\n", cred.cr_gid);
      printf(" %d Supplementary Groups:", cred.cr_ngroups - 1);
      for (n = 1; n < cred.cr_ngroups; n++)   /* [0] is the egid */
      printf(" %d", cred.cr_groups[n]);

#define CONTROL_LEN     (sizeof(struct cmsghdr) + sizeof(struct cred))

recv_cred(int fd, void *ptr, size_t nbytes, struct cred *credptr)
  struct msghdr   msg;
  struct iovec    iov[1];
  char            control[CONTROL_LEN + 20];
  int             n;
  msg.msg_name = NULL;
  msg.msg_namelen = 0;
  iov[0].iov_base = ptr;
  iov[0].iov_len = nbytes;
  msg.msg_iov = iov;
  msg.msg_iovlen = 1;

  msg.msg_control = control;
  msg.msg_controllen = sizeof(control);
  msg.msg_flags = 0;

  if ( (n = recvmsg(fd, &msg, 0)) < 0)
  credptr->cr_ngroups = 0;       /* indicates no credentials returned */
  if (credptr && msg.msg_controllen > 0)
      struct cmsghdr  *cmptr = (struct cmsghdr *) control;
      if (cmptr->cmsg_len != sizeof(struct cmsghdr) + sizeof(struct cred))
      err_quit("control length = %d", cmptr->cmsg_len);
      if (cmptr->cmsg_level != SOL_SOCKET)
      err_quit("control level != SOL_SOCKET");
      if (cmptr->cmsg_type != SCM_CREDS)
      err_quit("control type != SCM_CREDS");
      memcpy(credptr, CMSG_DATA(cmptr), sizeof(struct cred));


To compile on soalris :

 cc -o tfcred02 tfcred02.c -lsocket -lnsl -lrt

To Run :


Am getting some errors:

They are following :---->

[ab1221@eagles ~/AdvNetProg/Assign3]$ cc -o tfcred02 tfcred02.c -lsocket -lnsl -lrt

In the :

setsockopt(fd[1], 0, LOCAL_CREDS, &on, sizeof(on));

LOCAL_CREDS is not defined in the code.

int setsockopt( SOCKET s,  int level,  int optname,  const char* optval,  int optlen);

Hope this helps.
