critical impact:

Miscellaneous networking APIs - not supported (CrUn56)

NW Impacts

Problem description

The identified Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) exist on Tru64 UNIX and may or may not exist on HP-UX. If they do exist, they are either unsupported or undocumented. Also, the use of these routines might result in unexpected behavior.

The sethostid sets the unique identifier of the current host. The hostalias and hostalias_r routines search for host aliases. The dn_skipname routine skips over a compressed domain name. The rtime routine gets remote time. The pfopen routine opens a packet filter file. The putshort routine puts short byte quantities into the byte stream or arbitrary byte boundaries. The putlong routine places long byte quantities into the byte stream or arbitrary byte boundaries.

Some of these APIs are meant for internal use only.
