I listed open file for a process (a daemon) on my box which runs Mac OS X 10.5 :
>lsof -p 89 COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME ... xxxxx 89 xxxxxxxx 9u unix 0x34f8990 0t0 ->0x34f8880
I 'd like to find a way to open this socket and write in it. (that's my obsession this time ..)
How to find the i-node/name of the underlying file in order to reach that socket? Is there a way to address programatically this adress 0x34f888 from a shell script? If not so, how to do programatically ?
As a comment, I've launched the netstat command and get this result:
> netstat -u Active LOCAL (UNIX) domain sockets Address Type Recv-Q Send-Q Inode Conn Refs Nextref Addr ... 34f8990 stream 0 0 0 34f8880 0 0 ... 34f8880 stream 0 0 0 34f8990 0 0 ...
I am not a network/socket guru. Hope this could give more information
PS: to be honest I've posted this question on StackOverflow first (sorry, I don't think to ServerFault a first sight for now) but no one seems to give answer . :/ same question on SO
