Creates a listener and waits for an accepted TCP network connection at the specified port.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Default: No error
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.|
A network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the listener.
A network connection refnum that uniquely identifies the connection. Use this value to refer to this connection in subsequent node calls.
The address of the remote machine associated with the TCP connection.
The port the remote system uses for the connection.
Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
