typedef basic_socket_acceptor< stream_protocol > acceptor;
Types

Name

Description

broadcast

Socket option to permit sending of broadcast messages.

bytes_readable

IO control command to get the amount of data that can be read without blocking.

debug

Socket option to enable socket-level debugging.

do_not_route

Socket option to prevent routing, use local interfaces only.

enable_connection_aborted

Socket option to report aborted connections on accept.

endpoint_type

The endpoint type.

implementation_type

The underlying implementation type of I/O object.

keep_alive

Socket option to send keep-alives.

linger

Socket option to specify whether the socket lingers on close if unsent data is present.

message_flags

Bitmask type for flags that can be passed to send and receive operations.

native_handle_type

The native representation of an acceptor.

native_type

(Deprecated: Use native_handle_type.) The native representation of an acceptor.

non_blocking_io

(Deprecated: Use non_blocking().) IO control command to set the blocking mode of the socket.

protocol_type

receive_buffer_size

Socket option for the receive buffer size of a socket.

receive_low_watermark

Socket option for the receive low watermark.

reuse_address

Socket option to allow the socket to be bound to an address that is already in use.

send_buffer_size

Socket option for the send buffer size of a socket.

send_low_watermark

Socket option for the send low watermark.

service_type

The type of the service that will be used to provide I/O operations.

shutdown_type

Different ways a socket may be shutdown.

Member Functions

Name

Description

accept

Accept a new connection.

Accept a new connection and obtain the endpoint of the peer.

assign

Assigns an existing native acceptor to the acceptor.

async_accept

basic_socket_acceptor

Construct an acceptor without opening it.

Construct an open acceptor.

Construct an acceptor opened on the given endpoint.

Construct a basic_socket_acceptor on an existing native acceptor.

Move-construct a basic_socket_acceptor from another.

bind

Bind the acceptor to the given local endpoint.

cancel

Cancel all asynchronous operations associated with the acceptor.

close

Close the acceptor.

get_io_service

Get the io_service associated with the object.

get_option

Get an option from the acceptor.

io_control

Perform an IO control command on the acceptor.

is_open

Determine whether the acceptor is open.

listen

Place the acceptor into the state where it will listen for new connections.

local_endpoint

Get the local endpoint of the acceptor.

native

(Deprecated: Use native_handle().) Get the native acceptor representation.

native_handle

Get the native acceptor representation.

native_non_blocking

Gets the non-blocking mode of the native acceptor implementation.

Sets the non-blocking mode of the native acceptor implementation.

non_blocking

Gets the non-blocking mode of the acceptor.

Sets the non-blocking mode of the acceptor.

open

Open the acceptor using the specified protocol.

operator=

Move-assign a basic_socket_acceptor from another.

Move-assign a basic_socket_acceptor from an acceptor of another protocol type.

set_option

Set an option on the acceptor.

Protected Member Functions

Name

Description

get_implementation

Get the underlying implementation of the I/O object.

get_service

Get the service associated with the I/O object.

Data Members

Name

Description

max_connections

The maximum length of the queue of pending incoming connections.

message_do_not_route

Specify that the data should not be subject to routing.

message_end_of_record

Specifies that the data marks the end of a record.

message_out_of_band

Process out-of-band data.

message_peek

Peek at incoming data without removing it from the input queue.

Protected Data Members

Name

Description

implementation

(Deprecated: Use get_implementation().) The underlying implementation of the I/O object.

service

(Deprecated: Use get_service().) The service associated with the I/O object.

The basic_socket_acceptor class template is used for accepting new socket connections.

Thread Safety

Distinct objects: Safe.

Shared objects: Unsafe.

Example

Opening a socket acceptor with the SO_REUSEADDR option enabled:

boost::asio::ip::tcp::acceptor acceptor(io_service);
boost::asio::ip::tcp::endpoint endpoint(boost::asio::ip::tcp::v4(), port);
acceptor.open(endpoint.protocol());
acceptor.set_option(boost::asio::ip::tcp::acceptor::reuse_address(true));
acceptor.bind(endpoint);
acceptor.listen();
