Package transport provides the Transport interface, which represents the devices and network protocols used to send and receive data.

Variables

var AcceptTimeout = 60 * time.Second

AcceptTimeout is the maximum duration an Accept is allowed to take. This includes the time between accepting the raw network connection, protocol selection as well as the handshake, if applicable.

var DialTimeout = 60 * time.Second

DialTimeout is the maximum duration a Dial is allowed to take. This includes the time between dialing the raw network connection, protocol selection as well the handshake, if applicable.

type CapableConn Uses

type CapableConn interface {
    mux.MuxedConn
    network.ConnSecurity
    network.ConnMultiaddrs

    // Transport returns the transport to which this connection belongs.
    Transport() Transport
}

A CapableConn represents a connection that has offers the basic capabilities required by libp2p: stream multiplexing, encryption and peer authentication.

These capabilities may be natively provided by the transport, or they may be shimmed via the "connection upgrade" process, which converts a "raw" network connection into one that supports such capabilities by layering an encryption channel and a stream multiplexer.

CapableConn provides accessors for the local and remote multiaddrs used to establish the connection and an accessor for the underlying Transport.

type Listener Uses

type Listener interface {
    Accept() (CapableConn, error)
    Close() error
    Addr() net.Addr
    Multiaddr() ma.Multiaddr
}

Listener is an interface closely resembling the net.Listener interface. The only real difference is that Accept() returns Conn's of the type in this package, and also exposes a Multiaddr method as opposed to a regular Addr method

type Transport Uses

type Transport interface {
    // Dial dials a remote peer. It should try to reuse local listener
    // addresses if possible but it may choose not to.
    Dial(ctx context.Context, raddr ma.Multiaddr, p peer.ID) (CapableConn, error)

    // CanDial returns true if this transport knows how to dial the given
    // multiaddr.
    //
    // Returning true does not guarantee that dialing this multiaddr will
    // succeed. This function should *only* be used to preemptively filter
    // out addresses that we can't dial.
    CanDial(addr ma.Multiaddr) bool

    // Listen listens on the passed multiaddr.
    Listen(laddr ma.Multiaddr) (Listener, error)

    // Protocol returns the set of protocols handled by this transport.
    //
    // See the Network interface for an explanation of how this is used.
    Protocols() []int

    // Proxy returns true if this is a proxy transport.
    //
    // See the Network interface for an explanation of how this is used.
    // TODO: Make this a part of the go-multiaddr protocol instead?
    Proxy() bool
}

Transport represents any device by which you can connect to and accept connections from other peers.

The Transport interface allows you to open connections to other peers by dialing them, and also lets you listen for incoming connections.

Connections returned by Dial and passed into Listeners are of type CapableConn, which means that they have been upgraded to support stream multiplexing and connection security (encryption and authentication).

type TransportNetwork Uses

type TransportNetwork interface {
    network.Network

    // AddTransport adds a transport to this Network.
    //
    // When dialing, this Network will iterate over the protocols in the
    // remote multiaddr and pick the first protocol registered with a proxy
    // transport, if any. Otherwise, it'll pick the transport registered to
    // handle the last protocol in the multiaddr.
    //
    // When listening, this Network will iterate over the protocols in the
    // local multiaddr and pick the *last* protocol registered with a proxy
    // transport, if any. Otherwise, it'll pick the transport registered to
    // handle the last protocol in the multiaddr.
    AddTransport(t Transport) error
}

Network is an inet.Network with methods for managing transports.
