ockam tcp-outlet

ockam tcp-outlet <COMMAND>

A TCP Outlet makes a TCP service available on a worker address (allows data to be transmitted to a listener on a TCP address). It is one end of a portal (tcp-inlet being the other), which receives Ockam Routing messages, unwraps them to extract TCP data and sends that data along to the target service.



# Create a target service, we'll use a simple http server for this example
$ python3 -m http.server --bind 5000

# Create two nodes
$ ockam node create n1
$ ockam node create n2

# Create a TCP outlet from n1 to the target server
$ ockam tcp-outlet create --at /node/n1 --to

# Create a TCP inlet from n2 to the outlet on n1
$ ockam tcp-inlet create --at /node/n2 --from --to /node/n1/service/outlet

# Access the service via the inlet/outlet pair
$ curl
