rpc-begin

Arguments: (port rpc-port) &key (timeout 15) &allow-other-keys

This method starts the Lisp processes necessary to sustain an RPC connection. It is called automatically from rpc-open-server or rpc-open-client when port is a subclass of rpc-socket-port and when the begin keyword argument is omitted or non-nil. This function must be called explicitly if for some reason the application chooses to open an RPC port but does not start the processes. One reason to call rpc-begin separately could be to do additional tests on the connection streams before the RPC processes are enabled.

Returns t (or other non-nil) if the operation completed successfully. Returns nil and a second value describing the failure.

This method is not called when port is a subclass of rpc-datagram-port because sender and receiver process are not created in this case.

See also rpc.htm for general information on the Remote Procedure Call utility in Allegro CL.
