NAMEbindresvport - bind a socket to a privileged IP port
#include <sys/types.h>#include <netinet/in.h>int bindresvport(int sockfd, struct sockaddr_in *sin);
bindresvport() is used to bind the socket referred to by the file descriptor sockfdto a privileged anonymous IP port, that is, a port number arbitrarily selected from the range 512 to 1023.
If the bind(2) performed by bindresvport() is successful, and sinis not NULL, then sin->sin_portreturns the port number actually allocated.
sincan be NULL, in which case sin->sin_familyis implicitly taken to be AF_INET. However, in this case, bindresvport() has no way to return the port number actually allocated. (This information can later be obtained using getsockname(2).)
RETURN VALUEbindresvport() returns 0 on success; otherwise -1 is returned and errnoset to indicate the cause of the error.
ERRORSbindresvport() can fail for any of the same reasons as bind(2). In addition, the following errors may occur:
- The caller did not have superuser privilege (to be precise: the CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICEcapability is required).
- All privileged ports are in use.
- EAFNOSUPPORT (EPFNOSUPPORT in glibc 2.7 and earlier)
- sinis not NULL and sin->sin_familyis not AF_INET.

CONFORMING TONot in POSIX.1. Present on the BSDs, Solaris, and many other systems.
NOTESUnlike some bindresvport() implementations, the glibc implementation ignores any value that the caller supplies in sin->sin_port.
