package ipv4

import "golang.org/x/net/ipv4"

Package ipv4 implements IP-level socket options for the Internet Protocol version 4.

The package provides IP-level socket options that allow manipulation of IPv4 facilities.

The IPv4 protocol and basic host requirements for IPv4 are defined in RFC 791 and RFC 1122. Host extensions for multicasting and socket interface extensions for multicast source filters are defined in RFC 1112 and RFC 3678. IGMPv1, IGMPv2 and IGMPv3 are defined in RFC 1112, RFC 2236 and RFC 3376. Source-specific multicast is defined in RFC 4607.

Unicasting

The options for unicasting are available for net.TCPConn, net.UDPConn and net.IPConn which are created as network connections that use the IPv4 transport. When a single TCP connection carrying a data flow of multiple packets needs to indicate the flow is important, Conn is used to set the type-of-service field on the IPv4 header for each packet.

ln, err := net.Listen("tcp4", "0.0.0.0:1024")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
defer ln.Close()
for {
	c, err := ln.Accept()
	if err != nil {
		// error handling
	}
	go func(c net.Conn) {
		defer c.Close()

The outgoing packets will be labeled DiffServ assured forwarding class 1 low drop precedence, known as AF11 packets.

		if err := ipv4.NewConn(c).SetTOS(0x28); err != nil {
			// error handling
		}
		if _, err := c.Write(data); err != nil {
			// error handling
		}
	}(c)
}

Multicasting

The options for multicasting are available for net.UDPConn and net.IPconn which are created as network connections that use the IPv4 transport. A few network facilities must be prepared before you begin multicasting, at a minimum joining network interfaces and multicast groups.

en0, err := net.InterfaceByName("en0")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
en1, err := net.InterfaceByIndex(911)
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
group := net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 250)

First, an application listens to an appropriate address with an appropriate service port.

c, err := net.ListenPacket("udp4", "0.0.0.0:1024")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
defer c.Close()

Second, the application joins multicast groups, starts listening to the groups on the specified network interfaces. Note that the service port for transport layer protocol does not matter with this operation as joining groups affects only network and link layer protocols, such as IPv4 and Ethernet.

p := ipv4.NewPacketConn(c)
if err := p.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: group}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.JoinGroup(en1, &net.UDPAddr{IP: group}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

The application might set per packet control message transmissions between the protocol stack within the kernel. When the application needs a destination address on an incoming packet, SetControlMessage of PacketConn is used to enable control message transmissions.

if err := p.SetControlMessage(ipv4.FlagDst, true); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

The application could identify whether the received packets are of interest by using the control message that contains the destination address of the received packet.

b := make([]byte, 1500)
for {
	n, cm, src, err := p.ReadFrom(b)
	if err != nil {
		// error handling
	}
	if cm.Dst.IsMulticast() {
		if cm.Dst.Equal(group) {
			// joined group, do something
		} else {
			// unknown group, discard
			continue
		}
	}

The application can also send both unicast and multicast packets.

	p.SetTOS(0x0)
	p.SetTTL(16)
	if _, err := p.WriteTo(data, nil, src); err != nil {
		// error handling
	}
	dst := &net.UDPAddr{IP: group, Port: 1024}
	for _, ifi := range []*net.Interface{en0, en1} {
		if err := p.SetMulticastInterface(ifi); err != nil {
			// error handling
		}
		p.SetMulticastTTL(2)
		if _, err := p.WriteTo(data, nil, dst); err != nil {
			// error handling
		}
	}
}

More multicasting

An application that uses PacketConn or RawConn may join multiple multicast groups. For example, a UDP listener with port 1024 might join two different groups across over two different network interfaces by using:

c, err := net.ListenPacket("udp4", "0.0.0.0:1024")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
defer c.Close()
p := ipv4.NewPacketConn(c)
if err := p.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 248)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 249)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.JoinGroup(en1, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 249)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

It is possible for multiple UDP listeners that listen on the same UDP port to join the same multicast group. The net package will provide a socket that listens to a wildcard address with reusable UDP port when an appropriate multicast address prefix is passed to the net.ListenPacket or net.ListenUDP.

c1, err := net.ListenPacket("udp4", "224.0.0.0:1024")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
defer c1.Close()
c2, err := net.ListenPacket("udp4", "224.0.0.0:1024")
if err != nil {
	// error handling
}
defer c2.Close()
p1 := ipv4.NewPacketConn(c1)
if err := p1.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 248)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
p2 := ipv4.NewPacketConn(c2)
if err := p2.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 248)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

Also it is possible for the application to leave or rejoin a multicast group on the network interface.

if err := p.LeaveGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 248)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.JoinGroup(en0, &net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 250)}); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

Source-specific multicasting

An application that uses PacketConn or RawConn on IGMPv3 supported platform is able to join source-specific multicast groups. The application may use JoinSourceSpecificGroup and LeaveSourceSpecificGroup for the operation known as "include" mode,

ssmgroup := net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(232, 7, 8, 9)}
ssmsource := net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(192, 168, 0, 1)})
if err := p.JoinSourceSpecificGroup(en0, &ssmgroup, &ssmsource); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.LeaveSourceSpecificGroup(en0, &ssmgroup, &ssmsource); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

or JoinGroup, ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup, IncludeSourceSpecificGroup and LeaveGroup for the operation known as "exclude" mode.

exclsource := net.UDPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(192, 168, 0, 254)}
if err := p.JoinGroup(en0, &ssmgroup); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup(en0, &ssmgroup, &exclsource); err != nil {
	// error handling
}
if err := p.LeaveGroup(en0, &ssmgroup); err != nil {
	// error handling
}

Note that it depends on each platform implementation what happens when an application which runs on IGMPv3 unsupported platform uses JoinSourceSpecificGroup and LeaveSourceSpecificGroup. In general the platform tries to fall back to conversations using IGMPv1 or IGMPv2 and starts to listen to multicast traffic. In the fallback case, ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup and IncludeSourceSpecificGroup may return an error.

Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Parameters, Updated: 2013-04-19

func (ICMPType) Protocol Uses

func (typ ICMPType) Protocol() int

Protocol returns the ICMPv4 protocol number.

func (ICMPType) String Uses

func (typ ICMPType) String() string

type Message Uses

type Message = socket.Message

A Message represents an IO message.

type Message struct {
	Buffers [][]byte
	OOB     []byte
	Addr    net.Addr
	N       int
	NN      int
	Flags   int
}

The Buffers fields represents a list of contiguous buffers, which can be used for vectored IO, for example, putting a header and a payload in each slice. When writing, the Buffers field must contain at least one byte to write. When reading, the Buffers field will always contain a byte to read.

The OOB field contains protocol-specific control or miscellaneous ancillary data known as out-of-band data. It can be nil when not required.

The Addr field specifies a destination address when writing. It can be nil when the underlying protocol of the endpoint uses connection-oriented communication. After a successful read, it may contain the source address on the received packet.

The N field indicates the number of bytes read or written from/to Buffers.

The NN field indicates the number of bytes read or written from/to OOB.

The Flags field contains protocol-specific information on the received message.

type PacketConn Uses

type PacketConn struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

A PacketConn represents a packet network endpoint that uses the IPv4 transport. It is used to control several IP-level socket options including multicasting. It also provides datagram based network I/O methods specific to the IPv4 and higher layer protocols such as UDP.

Code:

c, err := net.ListenPacket("udp4", "0.0.0.0:5353") // mDNS over UDP
if err != nil {

    if !cm.Dst.IsMulticast() || !cm.Dst.Equal(mDNSLinkLocal.IP) {
        continue
    }
    answers := []byte("FAKE-MDNS-ANSWERS") // fake mDNS answers, you need to implement this
    if _, err := p.WriteTo(answers, nil, peer); err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
}

Code:

ips, err := net.LookupIP(host)
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}

        return

}

func NewPacketConn Uses

func NewPacketConn(c net.PacketConn) *PacketConn

NewPacketConn returns a new PacketConn using c as its underlying transport.

func (*PacketConn) Close Uses

func (c *PacketConn) Close() error

Close closes the endpoint.

func (*PacketConn) ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group, source net.Addr) error

ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup excludes the source-specific group from the already joined any-source groups by JoinGroup on the interface ifi.

func (*PacketConn) ICMPFilter Uses

func (c *PacketConn) ICMPFilter() (*ICMPFilter, error)

ICMPFilter returns an ICMP filter. Currently only Linux supports this.

func (*PacketConn) IncludeSourceSpecificGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) IncludeSourceSpecificGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group, source net.Addr) error

IncludeSourceSpecificGroup includes the excluded source-specific group by ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup again on the interface ifi.

func (*PacketConn) JoinGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) JoinGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group net.Addr) error

JoinGroup joins the group address group on the interface ifi. By default all sources that can cast data to group are accepted. It's possible to mute and unmute data transmission from a specific source by using ExcludeSourceSpecificGroup and IncludeSourceSpecificGroup. JoinGroup uses the system assigned multicast interface when ifi is nil, although this is not recommended because the assignment depends on platforms and sometimes it might require routing configuration.

func (*PacketConn) JoinSourceSpecificGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) JoinSourceSpecificGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group, source net.Addr) error

JoinSourceSpecificGroup joins the source-specific group comprising group and source on the interface ifi. JoinSourceSpecificGroup uses the system assigned multicast interface when ifi is nil, although this is not recommended because the assignment depends on platforms and sometimes it might require routing configuration.

func (*PacketConn) LeaveGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) LeaveGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group net.Addr) error

LeaveGroup leaves the group address group on the interface ifi regardless of whether the group is any-source group or source-specific group.

func (*PacketConn) LeaveSourceSpecificGroup Uses

func (c *PacketConn) LeaveSourceSpecificGroup(ifi *net.Interface, group, source net.Addr) error

LeaveSourceSpecificGroup leaves the source-specific group on the interface ifi.

func (*PacketConn) MulticastInterface Uses

func (c *PacketConn) MulticastInterface() (*net.Interface, error)

MulticastInterface returns the default interface for multicast packet transmissions.

func (*PacketConn) MulticastLoopback Uses

func (c *PacketConn) MulticastLoopback() (bool, error)

MulticastLoopback reports whether transmitted multicast packets should be copied and send back to the originator.

func (*PacketConn) MulticastTTL Uses

func (c *PacketConn) MulticastTTL() (int, error)

MulticastTTL returns the time-to-live field value for outgoing multicast packets.

func (*PacketConn) ReadBatch Uses

The provided flags is a set of platform-dependent flags, such as syscall.MSG_PEEK.

On a successful read it returns the number of messages received, up to len(ms).

On Linux, a batch read will be optimized. On other platforms, this method will read only a single message.

Unlike the ReadFrom method, it doesn't strip the IPv4 header followed by option headers from the received IPv4 datagram when the underlying transport is net.IPConn. Each Buffers field of Message must be large enough to accommodate an IPv4 header and option headers.

func (*PacketConn) ReadFrom Uses

func (c *PacketConn) ReadFrom(b []byte) (n int, cm *ControlMessage, src net.Addr, err error)

ReadFrom reads a payload of the received IPv4 datagram, from the endpoint c, copying the payload into b. It returns the number of bytes copied into b, the control message cm and the source address src of the received datagram.

}

A RawConn represents a packet network endpoint that uses the IPv4 transport. It is used to control several IP-level socket options including IPv4 header manipulation. It also provides datagram based network I/O methods specific to the IPv4 and higher layer protocols that handle IPv4 datagram directly such as OSPF, GRE.

Code:

c, err := net.ListenPacket("ip4:89", "0.0.0.0") // OSPF for IPv4
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}
defer c.Close()
r, err := ipv4.NewRawConn(c)
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}

en0, err := net.InterfaceByName("en0")
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}
allSPFRouters := net.IPAddr{IP: net.IPv4(224, 0, 0, 5)}
if err := r.JoinGroup(en0, &allSPFRouters); err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}
defer r.LeaveGroup(en0, &allSPFRouters)

hello := make([]byte, 24) // fake hello data, you need to implement this
ospf := make([]byte, 24)  // fake ospf header, you need to implement this
ospf[0] = 2               // version 2
ospf[1] = 1               // hello packet
ospf = append(ospf, hello...)
iph := &ipv4.Header{
    Version:  ipv4.Version,
    Len:      ipv4.HeaderLen,
    TOS:      0xc0, // DSCP CS6
    TotalLen: ipv4.HeaderLen + len(ospf),
    TTL:      1,
    Protocol: 89,
    Dst:      allSPFRouters.IP.To4(),
}

var cm *ipv4.ControlMessage
switch runtime.GOOS {
case "darwin", "linux":
    cm = &ipv4.ControlMessage{IfIndex: en0.Index}
default:
    if err := r.SetMulticastInterface(en0); err != nil {
