Winsock ATM Structures

The following list provides concise descriptions of each Winsock ATM structure. For additional information on any structure, click the structure name.

ATM Structure Description
ATM_ADDRESS Stores ATM address data for ATM-based sockets.
ATM_BHLI Identifies B-HLI information for an associated ATM socket.
ATM_BLLI Identifies B-LLI information for an associated ATM socket.
sockaddr_atm Stores socket address information for ATM sockets.


For native ATM services, use AF_ATM for address family and the sockaddr_atm socket address structure. To open a native ATM socket, pass AF_ATM, SOCK_RAW, and ATMPROTO_AAL5 or ATMPROTO_AALUSER into the socket function, respectively.
