.SH ARGUMENTS
.IP \fIdisplay\fP 1i
Specifies the connection to the X server.
.ds Ho added or removed
.IP \fIhost\fP 1i
Specifies the host that is to be \*(Ho.
.ds Ho added or removed
.IP \fIhosts\fP 1i
Specifies each host that is to be \*(Ho.
.IP \fImode\fP 1i
Specifies the mode.
You can pass
.ZN EnableAccess
or
.ZN DisableAccess .
.IP \fInhosts_return\fP 1i
Returns the number of hosts currently in the access control list.
.IP \fInum_hosts\fP 1i
Specifies the number of hosts.
.IP \fIstate_return\fP 1i
Returns the state of the access control.
.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.ZN XAddHost
function adds the specified host to the access control list for that display.
The server must be on the same host as the client issuing the command, or a
.ZN BadAccess
error results.
.LP
.ZN XAddHost
can generate
.ZN BadAccess
and
.ZN BadValue
errors.
.LP
The
.ZN XAddHosts
function adds each specified host to the access control list for that display.
The server must be on the same host as the client issuing the command, or a
.ZN BadAccess
error results.
.LP
.ZN XAddHosts
can generate
.ZN BadAccess
and
.ZN BadValue
errors.
.LP
The
.ZN XListHosts
function returns the current access control list as well as whether the use 
of the list at connection setup was enabled or disabled.
.ZN XListHosts
allows a program to find out what machines can make connections.
It also returns a pointer to a list of host structures that
were allocated by the function. 
When no longer needed,
this memory should be freed by calling
.ZN XFree .
.LP
The
.ZN XRemoveHost
function removes the specified host from the access control list 
for that display.
The server must be on the same host as the client process, or a
.ZN BadAccess
error results.
If you remove your machine from the access list,
you can no longer connect to that server,
and this operation cannot be reversed unless you reset the server.
.LP
.ZN XRemoveHost
can generate
.ZN BadAccess
and
.ZN BadValue
errors.
.LP
The
.ZN XRemoveHosts
function removes each specified host from the access control list for that 
display.  
The X server must be on the same host as the client process, or a
.ZN BadAccess
error results.
If you remove your machine from the access list, 
you can no longer connect to that server,
and this operation cannot be reversed unless you reset the server.
.LP
.ZN XRemoveHosts
can generate
.ZN BadAccess
and
.ZN BadValue
errors.
.LP
The
.ZN XSetAccessControl
function either enables or disables the use of the access control list 
at each connection setup.
.LP
.ZN XSetAccessControl
can generate
.ZN BadAccess
and
.ZN BadValue 
errors.
.LP
The
.ZN XEnableAccessControl
function enables the use of the access control list at each connection setup.
.LP
.ZN XEnableAccessControl
can generate a
.ZN BadAccess 
error.
.LP
The
.ZN XDisableAccessControl
function disables the use of the access control list at each connection setup.
.LP
.ZN XDisableAccessControl
can generate a
.ZN BadAccess 
error.
.SH STRUCTURES
The
.ZN XHostAddress
structure contains:

311 312 313 314 315 316
} XHostAddress;
.De
.LP
The family member specifies which protocol address family to use 
(for example, TCP/IP or DECnet) and can be

.ZN FamilyInternet6 ,
.ZN FamilyServerInterpreted ,
319 320 321 322 323
.ZN FamilyDECnet ,
or
.ZN FamilyChaos .
The length member specifies the length of the address in bytes.
The address member specifies a pointer to the address.

For the ServerInterpreted family, the length is ignored and the address 
member is a pointer to a 
.ZN XServerInterpretedAddress
structure which contains:
.LP
.Ds 0
.TA .5i 3i
.ta .5i 3i
typedef struct {
334 335 336 337
	int typelength;		/\&* length of type string, in bytes */
	int valuelength;	/\&* length of value string, in bytes */
	char *type;		/\&* pointer to where to find the type string */
	char *value;		/\&* pointer to where to find the address */

338 339 340 341 342 343 344
} XServerInterpretedAddress;
.De
.LP
The type and value members point to strings representing the type and value of
the server interpreted entry.  These strings may not be NULL-terminated so care
should be used when accessing them.  The typelength and valuelength members
specify the length in byte of the type and value strings.

.SH DIAGNOSTICS
.TP 1i
.ZN BadAccess
A client attempted
to modify the access control list from other than the local
(or otherwise authorized) host.
.TP 1i
.ZN BadValue
Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined
by the argument's type is accepted.  Any argument defined as a set of
alternatives can generate this error.
