Topics

Getting Socket Flow Properties

var remoteEndpoint: NWEndpoint?

An NWEndpoint object containing details about the socket’s remote endpoint. This endpoint object may be nil when [NEFilterDataProvider handleNewFlow:] is invoked; if so, it will be populated upon receiving network data. In such a case, flow filtering may still be performed based on its socket type, socket family, or socket protocol.

var localEndpoint: NWEndpoint?

An NWEndpoint object containing details about the socket’s local endpoint. This endpoint object may be nil when [NEFilterDataProvider handleNewFlow:] is invoked; if so, it will be populated upon receiving network data. In such a case, flow filtering may still be performed based on its socket type, socket family, or socket protocol.

var socketFamily: Int32

The protocol family of the socket. For example, PF_INET.

var socketType: Int32

The type of the socket. For example, SOCK_STREAM.

var socketProtocol: Int32

The protocol of the socket. For example, IPPROTO_TCP.
