HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

Hi All!

I have a some application wich use HP SSL API, it
1) accept an incomming TCP connection witj $QIO
2) Use SSL_set_fd(,decc$socket_fd (chan))
SSL_accept(...)
3) set setsockopt(decc$socket_fd (chan),SOL_SOCKET,SO_KEEPALIVE,&chan,sizeof(chan));

So, a KEEP Alive checking is expecting for the TCP connection. But I do not see zero-length packets for the connection.


Is the SSL disable SO_KEEPALIVE actualy, or something else ?

Re: HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

Ruslan,

If you are using TCPware 5.7 or 5.8 (as the title says), then the following will help you determine if the socket has keepalive turned on or not.
$ define tw$sda tcpware:tcpware$sda
$ ana/sys
sda> tw show connections
!find the appropriate connection in the list
sda> tw show socket
If keepalive is set you will see it listed in the options.

I've done some programming using the SSL library, but have not been concerned whether or not keepalive was set. It's possible that SSL is transferring information frequently enough that there is no need for keepalive packets.

Him Richard!

Thanks, I'll try to get some more information...

Hmmm... It looks like that KeepAlive is set socket but there is not any zero-length packets...

Re: HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

Ruslan,

Unfortunately the SDA callouts don't show the actual information used in figuring out when to send a keepalive packet. The default value for when to send a keepalive packet would be the drop idle time * 5 seconds, so you have to wait at least 5 minutes to see if a keepalive is sent.

Hi, Richard!

I spend 10+ minutes in hope that will catch keepalive checking.

Re: HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

Works fine for me using a modified version of the SSL sample programs with the following line added after the connect() call
err = setsockopt(sock, SOL_SOCKET, SO_KEEPALIVE, &on, sizeof(on));

Re: HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

Richard,
see my first post. A TCP-connection is accepted by using $QIO. SSL stuff want "unix socket handle", to get it decc$socket_fd() is used.

Re: HP SSL & SO_KEEPALIVE + TCPWare-TCP

For the server it works if the setsocketopt is done on the listening socket before the accept, but not on the socket created as a result of the accept.

Richard,
pay attention that $QUI has been used. A test prog to reproduce the problem:
