For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class TargettedPeer(BasicPeer)

TargettedPeer([localaddr][,localport][,receiver_addr][,receiver_port]) -> new TargettedPeer component.

A simple component for receiving and transmitting UDP packets. It binds to the specified local address and port - from which it will receive packets and sends packets to a receiver on the specified address and port.

Can change where it is sending to by sending the new (addr,port) receiver address to the "target" inbox.


  • localaddr -- Optional. The local addresss (interface) to bind to. (default="")
  • localport -- Optional. The local port to bind to. (default=0)
  • receiver_addr -- Optional. The address the receiver is bound to - to which packets will be sent. (default="")
  • receiver_port -- Optional. The port the receiver is bound on - to which packets will be sent. (default=0)


  • control : Recieve shutdown messages
  • readReady : Notify that there is incoming data ready on the socket
  • inbox : Data to sent to the socket
  • writeReady : Notify that the socket is ready to send
  • target : Data receieved here changes the receiver addr/port data is tuple form: (host, port)


  • outbox : (data,(host,port)) tuples for each packet received
  • signal : Signals receiver is shutting down
  • _selectorSignal : For communication to the selector

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__init__(self[, localaddr][, localport][, receiver_addr][, receiver_port])

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature
