basic_socket_acceptor::basic_socket_acceptor (3 of 4 overloads)

Construct an acceptor opened on the given endpoint.

basic_socket_acceptor(
    boost::asio::io_service & io_service,
    const endpoint_type & endpoint,
    bool reuse_addr = true);

This constructor creates an acceptor and automatically opens it to listen for new connections on the specified endpoint.

Parameters

io_service

The io_service object that the acceptor will use to dispatch handlers for any asynchronous operations performed on the acceptor.

endpoint

An endpoint on the local machine on which the acceptor will listen for new connections.

reuse_addr

Whether the constructor should set the socket option socket_base::reuse_address.

Exceptions

boost::system::system_error

Thrown on failure.

Remarks

This constructor is equivalent to the following code:

basic_socket_acceptor<Protocol> acceptor(io_service);
acceptor.open(endpoint.protocol());
if (reuse_addr)
  acceptor.set_option(socket_base::reuse_address(true));
acceptor.bind(endpoint);
acceptor.listen(listen_backlog);
