nng_dialer_start(3)

SYNOPSIS

#include <nng/nng.h>

int nng_dialer_start(nng_dialer d, int flags);

DESCRIPTION

The nng_dialer_start() function starts the dialer d.

This causes the dialer to start connecting to the address with which it was created.

When a connection is established, it results in a pipe being created, which will be attached to the dialer’s socket.

Normally, the first attempt to connect to the dialer’s address is done synchronously, including any necessary name resolution. As a result, a failure, such as if the connection is refused, will be returned immediately, and no further action will be taken.

However, if the special value NNG_FLAG_NONBLOCK is supplied in flags, then the connection attempt is made asynchronously.

Furthermore, if the connection was closed for a synchronously dialed connection, the dialer will still attempt to redial asynchronously.

While NNG_FLAG_NONBLOCK can help an application be more resilient, it also generally makes diagnosing failures somewhat more difficult.

Once a dialer has started, it is generally not possible to change its configuration.
