It should fail with EADDRNOTAVAIL. If the application wants to
fallback to any available address it can do that itself when the error
is returned.

So now, connect() need to know whether or not setsockopt() was invoked for setting the desired mobility service type - also a new functionality of connect().

bind can be called in that case for the same effect.

Danny,

The problem is that this is API and not protocol being standardized--
it may or may not be adopted by implementations. Adding a new socket
call is a big deal. You'll need to justify that this it is necessary
and that the functionality can't be acheived with existing API. I
would suggest that you post patches for this to Linux netdev to get
feedback from the developer community.

However, some people raised the concern that this new feature changes the behavior of the function in a way that may confuse programmers and requested to use a new function (setsc()).

On the other hand, this new feature may trigger an exchange of packets between the IP stack in the mobile node and the network allocating the IP prefix. This exchange takes time and the function can return only after the exchange is completed. They insisted that we maintain the current 'immediate' return behavior of setsockopt() and introduce a new function that might 'block' the calling thread until it completes.

It seems like the required functionality of the draft could be achieved by calling setsockopt to express desired address type and then calling connect on the socket. Connect will bind an address with the requested type and can obviously block if work needs to be done to find an appropriate address. This simplifies the API and addresses an ambiguity in the draft-- when setsc returns it is unclear if the address was somehow reserved for the socket use (e.g.
