make-rpc-server

Arguments: port-class &key name open local-host local-port limit max timeout home re-connect begin connect-action connect-function connect-args debug verbose mode export message-timeout message-length certificate key other-certificates tester passcode confirm &allow-other-keys

This function creates a server object appropriate for the specified port-class. The port-class argument may be nil. In that case the default port-class is rpc-socket-server.

When the port-class argument is a subtype of rpc-socket-server, then an instance of a stream socket server is created. When the port-class argument is further a subclass of with-rpc-server-enabler (such as rpc-socket-server-with-enabler), additional keyword arguments tester and passcode are supported. They are described below with the other keyword arguments.

When the port-class argument is a subtype of rpc-datagram-server, then an instance of a datagram connection server is created. Note that when creating a datagram connection server, no value should be specified for the name. The name of datagram servers and ports is always generated from the host and port information. Since each RPC call looks like a new connection to a server, the limit argument should be normally nil or a large number.

This new server object must be activated with a call to rpc-open-listener or rpc-open-server. If the open argument is :listener then rpc-open-listener is called implicitly. If the open argument is :port then rpc-open-server is called implicitly.

Multiple values are returned:

  1. the server-instance (nil if a server cannot be created)
  2. the port-instance (non-nil only when the value of the open argument is :port)
  3. the listener-process (non-nil only when the value of the open argument is :listener)
  4. error-code

Additional error information may be returned as fifth and subsequent values.

The keyword arguments are:
