Description Neil Horman 2004-04-14 15:54:03 EDT
Description of problem:
running lsof -i <PROTO>:<SVC_NAME> can return incorrect service names
if two services are configured with canonically byte swaped port values.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure an NIS server and client
2.export the services file via NIS and make sure the client searches
NIS first for services
3.add two services to the NIS services map as follows
servicea    11342/tcp
serviceb    20012/tcp
(Note that htons(11342)=20012)
4.open a socket on the NIS client and have it listen on port 11342
5.issue the command lsof -i TCP:servicea

Actual results:
lsof reports:
<host socket information mumble>:serviceb (LISTEN)

Expected results:
lsof should report:
<host socket information mumble>:servicea (LISTEN)

patch to correct byte order reversal in lsof

This patch removes an extra byte swap in the print routine during a last
getservbyname call, and fixes the reported issue.

Comment 3 Neil Horman 2004-04-15 07:14:34 EDT
Jakub, are you sure these bugs are duplicates.  they're two separate
apps which need to be modified in separate places, or are you planning
on finding a common point to fix these?
Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2004-04-15 07:20:20 EDT
Yes, I am sure.
They are not application bugs, but libnss_nis.so* bugs, see:
This patch is in RHEL3-U2 and AS2.1-U4 candidates ATM.
