Options

default values are marked with '*'

-h | --help
show this help

-l
run in server mode, accept multiple connections

-s
run in single connection server mode, exit on connection close default mode is client mode

--sock_type *SOCK_STREAM | SOCK_DGRAM | SOCK_RDM | SOCK_SEQPACKET

--server_type *1000|<n>

--addr_type TIPC_ADDR_NAMESEQ | TIPC_ADDR_MCAST | *TIPC_ADDR_NAME
For TIPC_ADDR_NAME only address 1 is used. For TIPC_ADDR_NAMESEQ or TIPC_ADDR_MCAST address 1 and address 2 are used.

--delay *0|<ms>
Defines data reading and writing delay in ms.

--data_num *0|<count>
Generates defined number of sample data and sends is.

--data_size *0
Generates packets of defined size when data_num is defined.

--data_check
Check sequence numbers in received data, generated with option data_num.

--buf_size *66000|<n>
I/O buffer size (see TIPC_MAX_USER_MSG_SIZE).

--wait_peer *0
Wait for peer published state before communication.

--top
run topology client

--replay
force connectionless server send input to last connected client

Short Options

--rdm
sock_type = SOCK_RDM

--pct
sock_type = SOCK_PACKET

--stm
* sock_type = SOCK_STREAM

--sqp
sock_type = SOCK_SEQPACKET

--nam
* addr_type = TIPC_ADDR_NAME

--mc
addr_type = TIPC_ADDR_MCAST or TIPC_ADDR_NAMESEQ

--id
addr_type = TIPC_ADDR_ID

EXAMPLES

SOCK_STREAM single connection server with address zero and client:
 tipc-pipe -s | tee input
 date | tipc-pipe

SOCK_RDM server with address 123 and client:
 tipc-pipe --rdm --replay -l 123
 tipc-pipe --rdm 123

Start topology client for all addresses of specified optional server type
 tipc-pipe --server_type=1000 --top -- 0 -1
