pfctlinput Kernel Service


Invokes the ctlinput function for each configured protocol.


#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/errno.h>
#include <sys/domain.h>
void pfctlinput (cmd, sa)
int cmd;
struct  sockaddr *sa;


cmd Specifies the command to pass on to protocols.
sa Indicates the address of a sockaddr structure that is passed to the protocols.
