AIXLink/X.25 1.1 for AIX: Guide and Reference

DL_DISCONNECT_REQ Primitive for X.25


Requests that an active data link be disconnected.


This primitive consists of one M_PROTO message block with the following structure:

typedef struct {
   ulong dl_primitive;
   ulong dl_reason;
   ulong dl_correlation;
} dl_disconnect_req_t;


The DL_DISCONNECT_REQ primitive requests the data link service (DLS) provider to disconnect an active data link connection or one that was in the process of activation. The DL_DISCONNECT_REQ primitive can be sent in response to a previously issued DL_CONNECT_IND or DL_CONNECT_REQ primitive. If an incoming DL_CONNECT_IND primitive is being refused, the correlation number associated with that connect indication must be supplied. The message indicates the reason for the disconnect.


dl_primitive Specifies the DL_DISCONNECT_REQ primitive.
dl_reason Specifies one of the following reasons for the disconnect:
DL_DISC_NORMAL_CONDITION Indicates a normal release of a data link connection.
DL_DISC_ABNORMAL_CONDITION Indicates an abnormal release of a data link connection.
DL_CONREJ_PERMANENT_COND Indicates a permanent condition caused the rejection of a connect request.
DL_CONREJ_TRANSIENT_COND Indicates a transient condition caused the rejection of a connect request.
DL_DISC_UNSPECIFIED Indicates the reason for the disconnect was not specified.
dl_correlation Specifies one of the following values:
0 Indicates either the disconnect request is releasing an established connection or is cancelling a previously sent DL_CONNECT_REQ primitive.
>0 Specifies the correlation number that was contained in the DL_CONNECT_IND primitive being rejected. This value permits the DLS provider to associate the primitive with the proper DL_CONNECT_IND primitive when the provider rejects an incoming connection.


Valid The message is valid in any of the following states:
New The resulting state is one of the disconnect pending states.


Successful The DL_OK_ACK primitive is sent to the DLS user, resulting in the DL_IDLE state.
Unsuccessful The DL_ERROR_ACK primitive is returned, and the resulting state is unchanged.

Error Codes

DL_BADCORR Indicates the correlation number specified in this primitive did not correspond to a pending connect indication.
DL_OUTSTATE Indicates the primitive was issued from an invalid state.
DL_SYSERR Indicates a system error, which is specified in the DL_ERROR_ACK primitive.

Implementation Specifics

This primitive is part of X.25 Licensed Program.
