NAME

libvdeplug_ptp - vdeplug module for point to point connections

SYNOPSIS

libvdeplug_ptp.so

DESCRIPTION

This module interconnects two vde supporting tools by a point to point communication line. This module of libvdeplug4 can be used in any program supporting vde like vde_plug, kvm, qemu, user-mode-linux and virtualbox.

The vde_plug_url syntax of this module is the following:


ptp://path_of_the_socket

EXAMPLES

ptp:///tmp/sock
The same vde_plug_url can be used at both ends of the connection. The first program creates the socket /tmp/sock. The second program connects to /tmp/sock, when it discovers that the socket already exists.
