class MulticastSocket

Library: Net

Description

A MulticastSocket is a special DatagramSocket that can be used to send packets to and receive packets from multicast groups.

Constructors

MulticastSocket

MulticastSocket();

Creates the multicast socket.

MulticastSocket

explicit MulticastSocket(
    IPAddress::Family family
);

Creates an unconnected datagram socket.

The socket will be created for the given address family.

MulticastSocket

MulticastSocket(
    const Socket & socket
);

Creates the DatagramSocket with the SocketImpl from another socket. The SocketImpl must be a DatagramSocketImpl, otherwise an InvalidArgumentException will be thrown.

MulticastSocket

MulticastSocket(
    const SocketAddress & address,
    bool reuseAddress = false
);

Creates a datagram socket and binds it to the given address.

Depending on the address family, the socket will be either an IPv4 or an IPv6 socket.

Destructor

~MulticastSocket virtual

~MulticastSocket();

Destroys the DatagramSocket.

Member Functions

getInterface

NetworkInterface getInterface() const;

Returns the interface used for sending multicast packets.

getLoopback

bool getLoopback() const;

Returns true if and only if loopback for multicast packets is enabled, false otherwise.

getTimeToLive

unsigned getTimeToLive() const;

Returns the TTL/hop limit for outgoing packets.

joinGroup

void joinGroup(
    const IPAddress & groupAddress
);

Joins the specified multicast group at the default interface.

joinGroup

void joinGroup(
    const IPAddress & groupAddress,
    const NetworkInterface & interfc
);

Joins the specified multicast group at the given interface.

leaveGroup

void leaveGroup(
    const IPAddress & groupAddress
);

Leaves the specified multicast group at the default interface.

leaveGroup

void leaveGroup(
    const IPAddress & groupAddress,
    const NetworkInterface & interfc
);

Leaves the specified multicast group at the given interface.

operator =

MulticastSocket & operator = (
    const Socket & socket
);

Assignment operator.

Releases the socket's SocketImpl and attaches the SocketImpl from the other socket and increments the reference count of the SocketImpl.

setInterface

void setInterface(
    const NetworkInterface & interfc
);

Sets the interface used for sending multicast packets.

To select the default interface, specify an empty interface.

This is done by setting the IP_MULTICAST_IF/IPV6_MULTICAST_IF socket option.

setLoopback

void setLoopback(
    bool flag
);

Enable or disable loopback for multicast packets.

Sets the value of the IP_MULTICAST_LOOP/IPV6_MULTICAST_LOOP socket option.

setTimeToLive

void setTimeToLive(
    unsigned value
);

Specifies the TTL/hop limit for outgoing packets.

Sets the value of the IP_MULTICAST_TTL/IPV6_MULTICAST_HOPS socket option.
