     ng_ccatm — ATM Call Control netgraph node type

     The ng_ccatm node implements the API specified by the ATM Forum for
     access to ATM services (see ATM-Forum document af-saa-0108).  This docu‐
     ment specifies the semantics of the API, not the exact language binding.
     For this reason, it is expected that this implementation is neither com‐
     pile-time nor binary compatible with other implementations of this API.
     It should, however, be fairly straightforward to convert between differ‐
     ent API implementations.

     This node is usually stacked on top of one or more UNI nodes (see
     ng_uni(4)).  Each of these hooks appears as a “port” to the user of the
     node.  It also has one hook connected to the ILMI daemon for management

     The node is removed when it receives a NGM_SHUTDOWN messages or when all
     hooks are disconnected.

     The node understands a number of hooks with predefined names and an
     unlimited number of hooks for user connections.  The predefined names

     uniNNN   These hooks stack the ng_ccatm node on top of a UNI stack.  The
	      node expects the interface on these hooks to conform to the
	      upper interface specified in ng_uni(4).  These hooks are forced
	      into queuing mode, so that there are no circular calls from call
	      control to UNI and UNI back to call control.  The NNN in the
	      hook name is the decimal port number and should not be zero.
	      The port number is a 32-bit unsigned integer.

     manage   This hook should be connected to the ILMI daemon.	 No data is
	      ever sent on this hook and all received data is discarded.  The
	      hook is used to send control messages along.

     dump     On receipt of a NGM_CCATM_DUMP command a textual description of
	      the current state of the node is sent out of this hook.  This
	      text is sent as one large message consisting of more than one

     All other hook names are taken to be user hooks and correspond to an ATM
     endpoint as specified in the ATM Forum document.  The interface on these
     hooks is defined in <atmapi.h> and uses a structure

     struct ccatm_op {
	     u_int32_t	     op;     /* request code */
	     u_char	     data[]; /* optional data */

     This structure is followed directly by the data for the operation.	 The
     opcode is one of the following:

     enum atmop {

     These codes correspond directly to the operations specified in the ATM
     Forum document with the following exceptions:

	     As discussed in ng_uni(4), this is used to “synchronify” the
	     interface.	 The argument is a

	     struct atm_resp {
		     int32_t	     resp;
		     uint32_t	     data;	     /* type of attached data */

	     If the response code resp is zero, the node has accepted the user
	     request.  If something goes wrong, resp contains an error code.
	     For requests that return data, data contains a code describing
	     the type of data and the data itself starts immediately after the

	     This is the same as ATMOP_QUERY_CONNECTION_ATTRIBUTES except that
	     it allows to query several attributes within one request.

	     This is the same as ATMOP_SET_CONNECTION_ATTRIBUTES except that
	     it allows to set several attributes within one request.  The list
	     of attributes is followed directly by the attributes in the same
	     order as they appear in the list.

     If a user hook is disconnected, an active connection on that hook is
     released.	Incoming connections waiting to be accepted are reoffered to
     other listening hooks or rejected.

     Besides the generic messages the node understands the following special

	     This causes the internal state of the node to be dumped in ASCII
	     to the dump hook.

	     This message causes all connections on that port to be aborted
	     (not released!) and all ATM endpoints which are bound to that
	     port to be closed.	 It stops processing of all messages from the
	     UNI stack on that port UNI stack.	The argument is a

	     struct ngm_ccatm_port {
		     uint32_t	     port;

	     Start processing on the port.  The argument is a ngm_ccatm_port

	     This message takes a ngm_ccatm_port structure and clears all pre‐
	     fixes and addresses on that port.	If the port number is zero,
	     all ports are cleared.

	     Get the list of all registered addresses on the given port.  The
	     argument is a ngm_ccatm_port structure and the result is a
	     ngm_ccatm_get_addresses structure:

	     struct ngm_ccatm_get_addresses {
		     uint32_t	     count;
		     struct ngm_ccatm_address_req addr[0];
	     struct ngm_ccatm_address_req {
		     u_int32_t	     port;
		     struct uni_addr addr;

	     If the port field is zero in the request, all addresses on all
	     ports are returned.  If it is not zero, only the addresses on
	     that port are reported.  The number of addresses is returned in
	     the count field.

	     This message is used by ILMI to inform the ng_ccatm node that a
	     previous address registration request was successful.  This
	     causes the node to activate that address.	The argument to the
	     message is a ngm_ccatm_address_req structure.

	     This message is used by ILMI to inform the ng_ccatm node that an
	     address has been unregistered.  The node clears that address from
	     its tables.  The argument is a ngm_ccatm_address_req structure.

	     This request sets the parameters on the given port.  The argument
	     is a

	     struct ngm_ccatm_atm_port {
		     uint32_t port;	     /* port for which to set parameters */
		     uint32_t pcr;	     /* port peak cell rate */
		     uint32_t max_vpi_bits;
		     uint32_t max_vci_bits;
		     uint32_t max_svpc_vpi;
		     uint32_t max_svcc_vpi;
		     uint32_t min_svcc_vci;
		     uint8_t  esi[6];
		     uint32_t num_addr;

	     This should be used only by ILMI and when that port is stopped
	     and the address and prefix tables of that port are empty.	The
	     num_addr field is ignored.

	     Retrieve the parameters of the given port.	 The argument is a
	     ngm_ccatm_port and the result a ngm_ccatm_atm_port.

	     Get a list of all available ports on that node.  This is returned
	     as a

	     struct ngm_ccatm_portlist {
		     uint32_t	     nports;
		     uint32_t	     ports[];

	     Return the state of a port.  The argument is a struct
	     ngm_ccatm_port and the return values as a uint32_t.

	     This requests sets a new logging level and returns the previous
	     one.  The argument is either a uint32_t in which case it speci‐
	     fies the new logging level, or may be empty in which case just
	     the old level is returned as a uint32_t.

	     Reset the node.  This is allowed only if the number of user hooks
	     and connected UNI stacks is zero.

	     Return extended status information from the node.
