Discussion

Note

We recommend using %SS_GETNAMEINFO rather than %SS_GETHOSTBYADDR, because the latter is based on a deprecated Winsock function.

%SS_GETHOSTBYADDR retrieves a host name using the host address in_addr as a search parameter.

If SS_ENULL is returned, the system error code can be returned by immediately calling %SYSERR.
