Syntax:<connection ... [rmode="server|client|server/client"]/>

 

Default value (if omitted):"server"

 

Relevance conditions:---

 

See also:Routing Mode (RM) setting (DS), Routing Mode option (VSP for Windows)

 


Rmode (routing mode) parameter defines whether the VSP will accept incoming connections (passive opens) and/or establish outgoing connections (perform active opens).

 

The following choices are available:

 

"server" (default)Only incoming connections are accepted, the VSP never attempts to establish an outgoing connection to the DS. There is no restriction on which DS can connect to the VSP- connection from any IP-address will be accepted as long as the DS is connecting to the correct bind port using correct transport protocol.

 

"client"Only outgoing connections are allowed, the VSP rejects all incoming connections.

 

"server/client"Both incoming and outgoing connections are allowed. Outgoing connections are established with the destination, specified in the destination section of the configuration file. Exactly when the VSP attempts to establish an outgoing connection is defined by the selected connection mode. Incoming connections are accepted from any IP-address, just like with the server routing mode.

 

 

Rmode parameter works like the Routing Mode (RM) setting on the DS and the Routing Mode option of the VSP for Windows.
