Socket created by %SS_SOCKET, bound to an address with %SS2_BIND, and that has successfully issued a call to %SS_LISTEN. (i4)

peer_socket

Returned with the peer socket descriptor. (i4)

in_port

(optional) Returned with the Internet port of the connecting entity. (i4)

Discussion

%SS2_ACCEPT accepts a connection on a stream socket and is used by stream socket server applications only.

%SS2_ACCEPT extracts the first connection on the pending queue, creates a new socket with the same properties as socket, and returns the new socket descriptor in peer_socket.

If the listen queue has no connection requests, %SS2_ACCEPT blocks until a connection is present.
