INFO: Detect AppleTalk PAP EOF in Winsock


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 4.0
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 4.0


When a Winsock application communicates with clients by using AppleTalk PAP Protocol, the Winsock application can detect that an end of file (EOF) is received if the MSG_PARTIAL flag is not set in the recv (recv/WSARecv/WSARecvEx) calls.


Under AppleTalk PAP Protocol, a sender can send an EOF notification to indicate an end-of-file mark in the stream. The EOF in PAP is different from the CloseConn request, which is the PAP request to close the connection.
