bindresvport - bind a socket to a privileged IP port


SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <netinet/in.h>

       int bindresvport(sd, sin)
       int sd;
       struct sockaddr_in *sin;


DESCRIPTION

       bindresvport()  is  used  to bind a socket descriptor to a
       privileged IP port, that is, a port number  in  the  range
       0-1023.  The routine returns 0 if it is successful, other­
       wise -1 is returned and errno set to reflect the cause  of
       the error.

       Only  root  can  bind to a privileged port; this call will
       fail for any other users.
