Detailed Description

The QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection establishes a communication channel between a client and a KNXnet/IP server endpoint. This is used by the client side to monitor the state of the communication channel. The IP address of the client must be set together with a local port. It is then possible to connect to a chosen KNXnet/IP server on a given port. To detect the failure of the channel, the class provides a heartbeat monitor timeout that can be modified according to the client needs. If the KNXnet/IP communication has to traverse across a network using network address translation (NAT), the client can also make the class aware of this.

Member Function Documentation

[signal] void QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::connected()

This signal is emitted after the client connects to a host and the KNXnet/IP connection is established.

[signal] void QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::disconnected()

This signal is emitted when the KNXnet/IP connection is lost or client closes the connection.

[signal] void QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::errorOccurred(QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::Error error, QString errorString)

This signal is emitted when there is an error in the KNXnet/IP connection. The errorString describes the error that occurred.

[signal] void QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::stateChanged(QKnxNetIpEndpointConnection::State state)

This signal is emitted when the KNXnet/IP connection state state changed.
