NAME

       sctp_peeloff - Branch off an association into a separate socket.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <sys/socket.h>
       #include <netinet/sctp.h>

       int sctp_peeloff(int sd, sctp_assoc_t assoc_id);

DESCRIPTION

       sctp_peeloff  branches  off an existing association assoc_id on a one-to-many style socket
       sd into a separate socket. The new socket is a one-to-one style socket.

       This is particularly desirable when, for instance, the application wishes to have a number
       of  sporadic message senders/receivers remain under the original one-to-many style socket,
       but branch off those assocations carrying high volume data traffic into their own separate
       socket descriptors.

RETURN VALUE

       On  success,  the  new  socket  descriptor  representing  the  branched-off  asociation is
       returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

       EBADF  sd is not a valid descriptor.

       EINVAL The assoc id passed is invalid or if the socket is a one-to-one style socket.

       ENOTSOCK
              Argument is a descriptor for a file, not a socket.
