libvdeplug_hub - multiplexing vdeplug module: hub

SYNOPSIS

libvdeplug_hub.so

DESCRIPTION

This is a libvdeplug multiplex module implementing a virtual networking hub.

This module of libvdeplug4 can be used in any program supporting vde like vde_plug, kvm, qemu, user-mode-linux and virtualbox.

The vde_plug_url syntax of this module is the following:

hub://[path]
hub://[path][[OPTION][/OPTION][/OPTION]...]

If path is omitted the path of the hub is /tmp/vdenode_$USERNAME (e.g. /tmp/vdenode_john if the username is john).

OPTIONS

mode=MODE
define the permissions for the hub (see chmod). MODE is an octal number. The standard permission mask is: 0600 (only processes owning to the same user can join the network).
dirmode=DIRMODE
define the permissions for the hub control directory(see chmod). MODE is an octal number. If omitted, is computed from mode.
grp=GROUP
define the group ownership of the hub.

EXAMPLES

hub:///tmp/hub
Other virtual machines, namespaces or vde_plug can join this hub using vde:///tmp/hub or simply /tmp/hub
hub:///tmp/hub[mode=0666]
It is the same hub, but everybody is allowed to connect their processes.
