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
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
char* brlapi_connectionSettings_t::auth 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.
char* brlapi_connectionSettings_t::host 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'.
Please check that resolving this name works before complaining
Settings NULL defaults it to localhost, using the local installation's
default TCP port, or to the content of the BRLAPI_HOST environment
variable, if it exists.
