Gets the default socket options. This feature is available in version 16 or higher.

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.


This function is used to get the default socket options that will be used when calling LDicomNet::Connect on a LDicomNet object. The default socket options are the options used if you call LDicomNet::Connect without first calling LDicomNet::SetSocketOptions.

This function always returns the same values.

This function is different from LDicomNet::GetSocketOptions which returns the socket options used when LDicomNet::SetSocketOptions was last called.

Internally, the socket is created when calling LDicomNet::Connect.

For more information about sockets, see the MSDN Winsock documentation.
