Relinquishes access to a network device.
void ns_free (nddp) struct ndd *nddp;
|nddp||Specifies the ndd structure of the network device that is to be freed from use.|
The ns_free network service relinquishes access to a network device. The ns_free network service also decrements the reference count for the specified ndd structure. If the reference count becomes 0, the ns_free network service calls the ndd_close subroutine specified in the ndd structure.
The following example illustrates the ns_free network service:
struct ndd *nddp ns_free(nddp);
The ns_alloc network service.
