bool is_connection_available ( ) const
bool is_listening ( ) const
Error listen ( int port, String bind_address=”*” )
void stop ( )
StreamPeerTCP take_connection ( )

Description

A TCP server. Listens to connections on a port and returns a StreamPeerTCP when it gets an incoming connection.

Method Descriptions

  • bool is_connection_available ( ) const

Returns true if a connection is available for taking.


  • bool is_listening ( ) const

Returns true if the server is currently listening for connections.


Listen on the port binding to bind_address.

If bind_address is set as "*" (default), the server will listen on all available addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6).

If bind_address is set as "0.0.0.0" (for IPv4) or "::" (for IPv6), the server will listen on all available addresses matching that IP type.

If bind_address is set to any valid address (e.g. "192.168.1.101", "::1", etc), the server will only listen on the interface with that addresses (or fail if no interface with the given address exists).


  • void stop ( )

Stops listening.


If a connection is available, returns a StreamPeerTCP with the connection.
