                                1997 April 13



 NAME
      getpeername - get name of connected TCP/IP peer

 SYNOPSIS
      getpeername [-n] [-p protocol]

 DESCRIPTION
      getpeername prints the IP address and service name (port number) of
      the remote peer connected to standard input.  The IP address and the
      service name are printed on the same line, separated by one space.

 OPTIONS
      -n   Don't translate IP addresses and port numbers to names.

      -p protocol
           Force getpeername to use protocol as the protocol when
           translating port numbers to service names.  Protocol can be tcp
           and udp.  Normally, getpeername automatically determines what
           type of socket it is connected to.

 SEE ALSO
      getpeername(3).

 BUGS
      Only works on IP sockets.
