Last Modified: February 27, 2017

Creates a listener and waits for an accepted TCP network connection at the specified port.

Programming Patterns

net address

Network address to listen on. Specifying an address is useful if you have more than one network card, such as two Ethernet cards, and want to listen only on the card with the specified address. If you do not specify a network address, this node listens on all network addresses. Use the String to IP Address node to obtain the IP network address of the current computer.

This input supports scalar strings and unsigned 32-bit integers.

Default: 0

datatype_icon

service name

Name you want to assign to the service. The node creates a known reference for the port number. If you specify a service name, this node registers the service name and the port number with the NI Service Locator.

datatype_icon

port

Port number on which you want to listen for a connection. Wire 0 to port to dynamically choose an available TCP port that the operating system determines is valid for use.

datatype_icon

timeout ms

Time, in milliseconds, that the node waits for a connection. If the node cannot establish a connection in the specified time, the node returns an error.

Default: -1 — Causes this node to wait indefinitely for a connection.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

resolve remote address

A Boolean that indicates whether to call the IP Address to String node on the remote address. Refer to IP Address to String for more information.

TRUE The node calls the IP Address to String node on the remote address.
FALSE The node does not call the IP Address to String node on the remote address.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

listener ID

A network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the listener.

datatype_icon

connection ID

A network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the connection. Use this value to refer to this connection in subsequent node calls.

datatype_icon

remote address

The address of the remote machine associated with the TCP connection.

datatype_icon

remote port

The port the remote system uses for the connection.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported
