(Deprecated.) Establishes a socket connection by trying each endpoint in a sequence.
template< typename Protocol, typename Iterator> Iterator connect( basic_socket< Protocol > & s, Iterator begin, typename enable_if<!is_endpoint_sequence< Iterator >::value >::type * = 0);
This function attempts to connect a socket to one of a sequence of endpoints.
It does this by repeated calls to the socket's
function, once for each endpoint in the sequence, until a connection is
The socket to be connected. If the socket is already open, it will be closed.
An iterator pointing to the start of a sequence of endpoints.
On success, an iterator denoting the successfully connected endpoint. Otherwise, the end iterator.
Thrown on failure. If the sequence is empty, the associated
boost::asio::error::not_found. Otherwise, contains
the error from the last connection attempt.
This overload assumes that a default constructed object of type
represents the end of the sequence. This is a valid assumption for iterator
types such as
