       brlapi_connectionSettings_t - Settings structure for BrlAPI connection.

       #include <brlapi.h>

   Data Fields
       char * auth
       char * host

Detailed Description
       This structure holds every parameter needed to connect to BrlAPI: which
       file the authorization key can be found in and which computer to
       connect to.

       Examples:.RS 4

        brlapi_connectionSettings_t settings;


       libbrlapi will read authorization key from file /etc/brlapi.key and
       connect to the machine called 'foo', on the default TCP port.'';

       lets directly enter an IP address instead of a machine name.':1';

       lets libbrlapi connect to the local computer, on port

Field Documentation
   char* brlapi_connectionSettings_t::auth
       For security reasons, libbrlapi has to get authorized to connect to the
       BrlAPI server. This can be done via a secret key, for instance. This is
       the path to the file which holds it; it will hence have to be readable
       by the application.

       Setting NULL defaults it to local installation setup or to the content
       of the BRLAPI_AUTH environment variable, if it exists.

   char* brlapi_connectionSettings_t::host
       This tells where the BrlAPI server resides: it might be listening on
       another computer, on any TCP port. It should look like 'foo:1', which
       means TCP port number BRLAPI_SOCKETPORTNUM+1 on computer called 'foo'.

           Please check that resolving this name works before complaining

       Settings NULL defaults it to localhost, using the local installation's
       default TCP port, or to the content of the BRLAPI_HOST environment
       variable, if it exists.
