Component:TCP Socket

Erik Massop edited this page Nov 4, 2017 · 1 revision

TCP sockets may be used by clients to talk to the daemon if the daemon is on a different machine with respect to the client. (Though this may be used locally as well, e.g. via 127.0.0.1) A typical path for this IPC mechanism could be "tcp://192.168.0.2:5555".

Notes:

  • There is no default port for this IPC mechanism, at present.
  • There are no authentication mechanisms in place at the moment, so any client can potentially connect to any exposed port. This could be resolved before a proper public release.
  • There can be only one IPC port. Support for multiple ports may be added later.
