The SNMPTCPMgr class is used to implement TCP-based SNMP Management Applications.

Syntax

class ipworkssnmp.SNMPTCPMgr

Remarks

The SNMPTCPMgr class implements a TCP-based standard SNMP Manager as specified in the SNMP RFCs. The class supports SNMP v1, v2c, and v3.

The class provides both encoding/decoding and transport capabilities, making the task of developing a custom SNMP manager as simple as setting a few key properties and handling a few events. SNMP data, such as for instance SNMP object id-s (OID-s) are exchanged as text strings, thus further simplifying the task of handling them.

The class is activated/deactivated by calling the activate or deactivate method. These methods enable or disable sending and receiving. The activation status can be found in the active property.

Messages are received through events such as on_response, on_trap, or on_inform_request. SNMP Traps are received through the on_trap event.

Messages are sent to other agents or managers by using class's methods such as send_get_request, send_get_next_request, send_get_bulk_request, send_set_request, and send_inform_request.

SNMP OIDs, types, and values are provided in the objects collection of SNMP objects for both sent and received packets.

SNMPv3 USM security is enabled by setting properties such as user, authentication_password, and encryption_password and calling the discover method to bind to a particular agent (remote_engine_id). Upon successful discovery, received packets are checked for integrity (authentication) and timeliness. Note that the discovery step is optional, and may be avoided if the values for remote_engine_id, remote_engine_boots, and remote_engine_time are known in advance and provided to the class through the respective properties.

By default, the class operates synchronously (except for the discover method), sending a request and waiting until the corresponding response has been received. This behavior may be overridden by setting timeout to 0, in which case the class returns control immediately after a send, and responses are received exclusively through the on_response event.

error_description Property

Description of the status code for the last SNMP packet received by the class.

Syntax

def get_error_description() -> str: ...

error_description = property(get_error_description, None)

Default Value

"0"

Remarks

Please refer to the error_status property for more information.

This property is read-only.

error_index Property

Index of the first variable (object) that caused an error from the last SNMP response.

Syntax

def get_error_index() -> int: ...

error_index = property(get_error_index, None)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property is used in conjunction with the error_status property, and refers to the object that caused the error reported in the last SNMP response. This value is parsed directly from the SNMP response, which will be a one-based value, so a value of i here maps to index i-1 in the objects collection.

The error_index property has no meaning when the error_status property is 0 (no error).

This property is read-only.

error_status Property

Status code for the last SNMP packet received by the class.

Syntax

def get_error_status() -> int: ...

error_status = property(get_error_status, None)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property is used in conjunction with the error_index property, which denotes the index of the variable in error. The error_description property provides a textual description of the error.

The following is a list of valid SNMP status code values:

0 (noError) No error.
1 (tooBig) The response cannot fit in a single SNMP message.
2 (noSuchName) Variable does not exist.
3 (badValue) Invalid value or syntax.
4 (readOnly) Variable is read-only.

Variable indexes start with 0. ErrorIndex has no meaning when ErrorStatus is 0 (no error).

The default value is 0 (no error).

This property is read-only.

local_engine_id Property

The Engine Id of the SNMP Manager.

Syntax

def get_local_engine_id() -> bytes: ...
def set_local_engine_id(value: bytes) -> None: ...

local_engine_id = property(get_local_engine_id, set_local_engine_id)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is only used for SNMPv3 packets (when snmp_version is 3).

local_host Property

The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.

Syntax

def get_local_host() -> str: ...
def set_local_host(value: str) -> None: ...

local_host = property(get_local_host, set_local_host)

Default Value

""

Remarks

The local_host property contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the local_host property shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

NOTE: local_host is not persistent. You must always set it in code, and never in the property window.

local_port Property

The port in the local host where the SNMP Manager is bound to.

Syntax

def get_local_port() -> int: ...
def set_local_port(value: int) -> None: ...

local_port = property(get_local_port, set_local_port)

Default Value

0

Remarks

The local_port property must be set before the class is activated (active is set to True). It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine. The default port is 0 (random port). If you would like to receive traps, set local_port to 162 (standard trap port). However, it is recommended that the SNMPTrapMgr class be used for listening to traps, because SNMPMgr is limited to receiving SNMPv3 traps from a single agent only. SNMPTrapMgr does not have this limitation.

local_port cannot be changed once the class is active. Any attempt to set the local_port property when the class is active will generate an error.

Note: on macOS and iOS, root permissions are required to set local_port to any value below 1024.

obj_count Property

The number of records in the Obj arrays.

Syntax

def get_obj_count() -> int: ...
def set_obj_count(value: int) -> None: ...

obj_count = property(get_obj_count, set_obj_count)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property controls the size of the following arrays:

The array indices start at 0 and end at obj_count - 1.

obj_type Property

The current object's type.

Syntax

def get_obj_type(obj_index: int) -> int: ...
def set_obj_type(obj_index: int, value: int) -> None: ...

Default Value

5

Remarks

The current object's type. The default type is NULL (5).

The corresponding object id and value are specified by the obj_oid and obj_value properties.

Possible object type values include:

otInteger (2) 2
otOctetString (4) 4
otNull (5) 5
otObjectID (6) 6
otIPAddress (64)64
otCounter32 (65)65

otTimeTicks (67)67
otOpaque (68)68
otNSAP (69)69
otCounter64 (70)70
otUnsignedInteger32 (71)71

The class also supports the following artificial object values used to designate error conditions:

otNoSuchObject (128)No such object error.
otNoSuchInstance (129)No such instance error.
otEndOfMibView (130)End of MIB View error.

The obj_index parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the obj_count property.

obj_id Property

The current object's id which is encoded as a string of numbers separated by periods.

Syntax

def get_obj_id(obj_index: int) -> str: ...
def set_obj_id(obj_index: int, value: str) -> None: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

The current object's id which is encoded as a string of numbers separated by periods. For instance: "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" (OID for "system description").

The corresponding object type and value (if any) are specified by the object_type and obj_value properties.

Example

SNMPControl.ObjCount = 1 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0"

The obj_index parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the obj_count property.

A string representation of the current object's ObjectType .

Syntax

def get_obj_type_string(obj_index: int) -> str: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

A string representation of the current object's object_type.

The corresponding object id and value are specified by the obj_oid and obj_value properties.

The obj_index parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the obj_count property.

This property is read-only.

obj_value Property

The current object's value.

Syntax

def get_obj_value(obj_index: int) -> bytes: ...
def set_obj_value(obj_index: int, value: bytes) -> None: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

The current object's value. The corresponding object id and type are specified by the obj_oid and object_type properties.

Example

SNMPControl.ObjCount = 1 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" SNMPControl.ObjValue(0) = "New Value"

The obj_index parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the obj_count property.

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is only used for SNMPv3 packets (see snmp_version), and is reset every time remote_host or remote_port changes.

remote_engine_id is normally discovered through the discover method. However, by manually supplying a value for the property, remote_engine_id discovery step may be eliminated, thus avoiding the extra roundtrip to the agent (remote_engine_boots and remote_engine_time are also required for user authentication - please refer to the discover method for more information).

remote_engine_time Property

The remote engine time (SNMPv3).

Syntax

def get_remote_engine_time() -> int: ...
def set_remote_engine_time(value: int) -> None: ...

remote_engine_time = property(get_remote_engine_time, set_remote_engine_time)

Default Value

0

Remarks

remote_engine_time is used by SNMPv3 authentication to ensure timeliness of requests, and avoid replay attacks.

The value of remote_engine_time is provided as what is expected to be the current value of the remote engine clock based on a cached time differential between the remote engine clock and the local engine time obtained during the discovery process (see discover).

This property is used in conjunction with remote_engine_boots. Please refer to the remote_engine_boots property and the discover method for more information.

remote_host Property

The address of the remote host. Domain names are resolved to IP addresses.

Syntax

def get_remote_host() -> str: ...

remote_host = property(get_remote_host, set_remote_host)

Default Value

""

Remarks

The remote_host property specifies the IP address (IP number in dotted internet format) or Domain Name of the host SNMP requests or traps are sent to.

If remote_host is set to 255.255.255.255, the class broadcasts data on the local subnet.

If the remote_host property is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated and upon successful termination of the request, the remote_host property is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

remote_port Property

The port where the remote SNMP agent is listening.

Syntax

def get_remote_port() -> int: ...
def set_remote_port(value: int) -> None: ...

remote_port = property(get_remote_port, set_remote_port)

Default Value

161

Remarks

The remote_port is the port on the remote_host to send SNMP requests to.

A valid port number (a value between 1 and 65535) is required. The default value is 161.

ssl_cert_store_type Property

This is the type of certificate store for this certificate.

Syntax

def get_ssl_cert_store_type() -> int: ...
def set_ssl_cert_store_type(value: int) -> None: ...

ssl_cert_store_type = property(get_ssl_cert_store_type, set_ssl_cert_store_type)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This is the type of certificate store for this certificate.

The class supports both public and private keys in a variety of formats. When the cstAuto value is used the class will automatically determine the type. This property can take one of the following values:

0 (cstUser - default)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a certificate store owned by the current user. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
1 (cstMachine)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a machine store. Note: this store type is not available in Java.
2 (cstPFXFile)The certificate store is the name of a PFX (PKCS12) file containing certificates.
3 (cstPFXBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in PFX (PKCS12) format.
4 (cstJKSFile)The certificate store is the name of a Java Key Store (JKS) file containing certificates. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
5 (cstJKSBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in Java Key Store (JKS) format. Note: this store type is only available in Java.
6 (cstPEMKeyFile)The certificate store is the name of a PEM-encoded file that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
7 (cstPEMKeyBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) that contains a private key and an optional certificate.

19 (cstJWKBlob)The certificate store is a string that contains a JWK (JSON Web Key).
20 (cstSecurityKey)The certificate is present on a physical security key accessible via a PKCS11 interface.

To use a security key the necessary data must first be collected using the CertMgr class. The list_store_certificates method may be called after setting cert_store_type to cstSecurityKey, cert_store_password to the PIN, and cert_store to the full path of the PKCS11 dll. The certificate information returned in the on_cert_list event's CertEncoded parameter may be saved for later use.

When using a certificate, pass the previously saved security key information as the ssl_cert_store and set ssl_cert_store_password to the PIN.

Code Example: SSH Authentication with Security Key certmgr.CertStoreType = CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey; certmgr.OnCertList += (s, e) => { secKeyBlob = e.CertEncoded; }; certmgr.CertStore = @"C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\opensc-pkcs11.dll"; certmgr.CertStorePassword = "123456"; //PIN certmgr.ListStoreCertificates(); sftp.SSHCert = new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey, secKeyBlob, "123456", "*"); sftp.SSHUser = "test"; sftp.SSHLogon("myhost", 22);

ssl_cert_subject Property

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

Syntax

def get_ssl_cert_subject() -> str: ...
def set_ssl_cert_subject(value: str) -> None: ...

ssl_cert_subject = property(get_ssl_cert_subject, set_ssl_cert_subject)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

This property must be set after all other certificate properites are set. When this property is set, a search is performed in the current certificate store certificate with matching subject.

If a matching certificate is found, the property is set to the full subject of the matching certificate.

If an exact match is not found, the store is searched for subjects containing the value of the property.

If a match is still not found, the property is set to an empty string, and no certificate is selected.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

The certificate subject is a comma separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are displayed below.

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a host name like www.server.com.
OOrganization
OUOrganizational Unit
LLocality
SState
CCountry
EEmail Address

If a field value contains a comma it must be quoted.

ssl_enabled Property

Whether TLS/SSL is enabled.

Syntax

def get_ssl_enabled() -> bool: ...
def set_ssl_enabled(value: bool) -> None: ...

ssl_enabled = property(get_ssl_enabled, set_ssl_enabled)

Default Value

FALSE

Remarks

This setting specifies whether TLS/SSL is enabled in the class. When False (default) the class operates in plaintext mode. When True TLS/SSL is enabled.

Note: SSL is not currently supported in this product. This setting is reserved for future user.

ssl_server_cert_encoded Property

This is the certificate (PEM/base64 encoded).

Syntax

def get_ssl_server_cert_encoded() -> bytes: ...

ssl_server_cert_encoded = property(get_ssl_server_cert_encoded, None)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This is the certificate (PEM/base64 encoded). This property is used to assign a specific certificate. The ssl_server_cert_store and ssl_server_cert_subject properties also may be used to specify a certificate.

When ssl_server_cert_encoded is set, a search is initiated in the current ssl_server_cert_store for the private key of the certificate. If the key is found, ssl_server_cert_subject is updated to reflect the full subject of the selected certificate; otherwise, ssl_server_cert_subject is set to an empty string.

This property is read-only.

store_walk_objects Property

Tells the class whether or not to store returned objects.

Syntax

def get_store_walk_objects() -> bool: ...
def set_store_walk_objects(value: bool) -> None: ...

store_walk_objects = property(get_store_walk_objects, set_store_walk_objects)

Default Value

TRUE

Remarks

When a walk is performed, this property tells the class whether or not to store the objects that are returned by the server in the objects collection. If the data is accumulated through the events, and not desired to be saved by the class, set this property to false.

timeout Property

A timeout for the class.

Syntax

def get_timeout() -> int: ...
def set_timeout(value: int) -> None: ...

timeout = property(get_timeout, set_timeout)

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the timeout property is set to 0, all operations return immediately, potentially failing with a WOULDBLOCK error if data cannot be sent immediately.

If timeout is set to a positive value, data is sent in a blocking manner and the class will wait for the operation to complete before returning control. The class will handle any potential WOULDBLOCK errors internally and automatically retry the operation for a maximum of timeout seconds.

The class will use do_events to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the class fails with an error.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the timeout property is 60 seconds.

user Property

The user name used for SNMPv3 authentication.

Syntax

def get_user() -> str: ...
def set_user(value: str) -> None: ...

user = property(get_user, set_user)

Default Value

""

Remarks

If authentication is desired, this property must be set before the class attempts to connect to an SNMPv3 Agent.

walk_limit Property

The limit of oid's returned in a walk.

Syntax

def get_walk_limit() -> int: ...
def set_walk_limit(value: int) -> None: ...

walk_limit = property(get_walk_limit, set_walk_limit)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property specifies the limit of how many oid's are to be traversed during an SNMP walk. If set to 0, the class will traverse all oid's in the specified table that are lexographically greater than the value of the specified table oid.

activate Method

Activates the class.

Syntax

def activate() -> None: ...

Remarks

This method activates the component and will allow it to send or receive data.

The class will be automatically activated if it is not already and you attempt to perform an operation which requires the class to be active.

Note: Use the active property to check whether the component is active.

config Method

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

def config(configuration_string: str) -> str: ...

Remarks

config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

deactivate Method

Deactivates the class.

Syntax

def deactivate() -> None: ...

Remarks

This method deactivates the component and will prohibit it from sending and receiving data.

Note: Use the active property to check whether the component is active.

discover Method

Performs SNMPv3 discovery.

Syntax

def discover() -> None: ...

Remarks

When the method is called an SNMPv3 engine discovery request is sent to remote_host.

If an authentication_password is provided, the engine id discovery request is followed by an engine time discovery request, as required by the SNMPv3 User Security Model (USM). In this case timeout must be set to a non-zero value before calling Discover and the class will wait until a response is received from remote_host.

The on_discovery_response event is fired upon receipt of a valid discovery response and the values of remote_engine_id, remote_engine_boots, and remote_engine_time will then be updated with the received Engine Id, Time, and Boots.

do_events Method

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

def do_events() -> None: ...

Remarks

When do_events is called, the class processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

hash_passwords Method

Hashes all passwords in the cache.

Syntax

def hash_passwords() -> None: ...

Remarks

Forces computation of all passwords hashes in the cache. Used together with the on_hash_password event to enable implementations of external password hash storage.

interrupt Method

Interrupt the current method.

Syntax

def interrupt() -> None: ...

Remarks

If there is no method in progress, interrupt simply returns, doing nothing.

reset Method

Clears the object arrays.

Syntax

def reset() -> None: ...

Remarks

Clears the object arrays, and sets the trap and error properties to their default values. This is useful for reinitializing all the properties that are used to create outgoing packets before building a new packet.

Note: snmp_version will be reset to snmpverV2c (2).

send_get_bulk_request Method

Send a GetBulkRequest packet.

Syntax

def send_get_bulk_request(non_repeaters: int, max_repetitions: int) -> None: ...

Remarks

Sends a GetBulkRequest packet. This is only available for SNMP versions 2 and 3.

NonRepeaters specifies the number of variables for which a single lexicographic successor is to be returned.

MaxRepetitions specifies the number of lexicographic successors to be returned for variables other than those in the NonRepeaters list.

The object identifiers, types, and values for the request are taken from the objects collection.

A GetBulkRequest is very similar to a GetNextRequest, the difference is that Getbulk performs a continuous GetNext operation based on the MaxRepitions value. The NonRepeaters value will determine the number of objects for which a simple GetNext operation should be performed. For the remaining variables, a continuous GetNext operation is performed based on the MaxRepitions value.

So if you send a request containing X objects, the agent will perform N simple GetNext operations and M continuous GetNext operations X - N times. With X being the number of objects received, N being the number of NonRepeaters, and M being the number of MaxRepitions. Thus the SNMPMgr is expecting to receive N + M x (X - N) objects, assuming that each object has M successors.

Example (Sending a GetBulk Request)

SNMPControl.RemoteHost = "MyAgent" SNMPControl.ObjCount = 2 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" SNMPControl.objId(1) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.3.0" SNMPControl.SendGetBulkRequest(1,4)

The code sample above will send a GetBulkRequest with 1 non repeater, and a maxrepetitions of 4. Since there is only 1 non repeater, only one ObjID will "not repeat" and will only return one successor. The rest of the ObjID's (in this case, only 1) will return 4 successors. This particular example will return the following ObjID's:

1 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.2.0
2 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.4.0
3 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.5.0
4 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.6.0
5 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.7.0

send_get_next_request Method

Send GetNextRequest packet.

Syntax

def send_get_next_request() -> None: ...

Remarks

Sends a GetNextRequest packet. The object identifiers, types, and values for the request are taken from the objects collection.

Example (Sending a GetNext Request)

SNMPControl.ObjCount = 2 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" SNMPControl.SendGetNextRequest() The agent will respond with the "next" (relative to the ObjID(s) you specify) OID in the table.

send_get_request Method

Send GetRequest packet.

Syntax

def send_get_request() -> None: ...

Remarks

Sends a GetRequest packet. The object identifiers, types, and values for the request are taken from the objects collection.

Example (Sending a GetRequest)

SNMPControl.RemoteHost = "MyAgent" SNMPControl.ObjCount = 2 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" SNMPControl.ObjId(1) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.2.0" SNMPControl.SendGetRequest()

send_inform_request Method

Send an InformRequest packet.

Syntax

def send_inform_request() -> None: ...

Remarks

Sends an InformRequest packet. The object identifiers, types, and values for the request are taken from the objects collection.

send_set_request Method

Send Set Request packet.

Syntax

def send_set_request() -> None: ...

Remarks

Sends a SetRequest packet. The object identifiers, types, and values for the request are taken from the objects collection.

Example (Sending a SetRequest)

SNMPControl.RemoteHost = "MyAgent" SNMPControl.ObjCount = 1 SNMPControl.ObjId(0) = "1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.0" SNMPControl.ObjValue(0) = "New Value" SNMPControl.ObjType(0) = otOctetString SNMPControl.SendSetRequest()

value Method

Returns the value corresponding to an OID.

Syntax

def value(oid: str) -> str: ...

Remarks

If the OID does not exist in the objects collection, a trappable error is generated.

Please refer to the SNMPObject type for more information.

walk Method

Does an SNMP walk starting with the specified oid.

Syntax

def walk(table_oid: str) -> None: ...

Remarks

A walk will traverse all OIDs in the TableOid that are lexographically greater than the value of the TableOid.

The results of the walk may be obtained through the Response events. During the event, the current returned object will exist inside of the objects collection. If store_walk_objects is set to true, the objects collection will contain all returned objects when the walk completes.

Use the walk_limit property to regulate how many objects the walk will traverse in the table.

NOTE: The collection of objects is cleared before the walk begins.

on_bad_packet Event

Remarks

The full message is provided in the Packet parameter.

The on_bad_packet event is also fired when authentication fails for received packets due to a bad password or other reasons.

If the Report parameter is set to True, an unauthenticated error report will be sent to the client, otherwise the packet will be silently ignored.

on_connected Event

Fired immediately after a connection completes (or fails).

Syntax

@on_discovery_request.setter
def on_discovery_request(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrDiscoveryRequestEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

EngineId, EngineBoots, EngineTime, and User are the values received from SourceAddress.

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

Respond is True by default, and will automatically send a response using the value in local_engine_id. To suppress the response, set Respond to False.

The value returned to SourceAddress for EngineBoots is always 0, and EngineTime is the number of seconds since January 1st, 1970 (GMT).

on_discovery_response Event

Fired when an SNMPv3 discovery response is received.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrDiscoveryResponseEventParams(object):
  @property
  def engine_id() -> bytes: ...

  @property
  def engine_boots() -> int: ...

  @property
  def engine_time() -> int: ...

@on_discovery_response.setter
def on_discovery_response(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrDiscoveryResponseEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

EngineId, EngineBoots, EngineTime, and User are the values received from SourceAddress and SourcePort.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated request, SecurityLevel is at least 1.

on_error Event

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrErrorEventParams(object):
  @property
  def error_code() -> int: ...

  @property
  def description() -> str: ...

# In class SNMPTCPMgr:
@property
def on_error() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrErrorEventParams], None]: ...
@on_error.setter
def on_error(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrErrorEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The on_error event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing. Normally the class fails with an error.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the Error Codes section.

on_hash_password Event

Fired before and after a password is hashed.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrHashPasswordEventParams(object):
  @property
  def password() -> str: ...

  @property
  def auth_algorithm() -> int: ...

  @property
  def hash() -> str: ...
  @hash.setter
  def hash(value) -> None: ...

# In class SNMPTCPMgr:
@property
def on_hash_password() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrHashPasswordEventParams], None]: ...
@on_hash_password.setter
def on_hash_password(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrHashPasswordEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

SNMPv3 passwords are hashed in order to obtain authentication and encryption keys. This is an expensive operation, and in certain situations it may be preferable to store the hashed passwords externally and supply them on demand.

If a hash is required, the event fires with an empty string in the Hash parameter. In this case, you can choose to supply a value for the hash and stop the class from computing the hash.

The event also fires every time a hash is computed. In this case, the Hash parameter contains the value of the computed hash.

AuthAlgorithm contains either 1 for HMAC-MD5-96, 2 for HMAC-SHA-96 or 3 for HMAC-192-SHA-256

on_inform_request Event

Fired when an InformRequest packet is received.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrInformRequestEventParams(object):
  @property
  def request_id() -> int: ...

  @property
  def snmp_version() -> int: ...

  @property
  def community() -> str: ...

  @property

  @property
  def respond() -> bool: ...
  @respond.setter
  def respond(value) -> None: ...

# In class SNMPTCPMgr:
@property
def on_inform_request() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrInformRequestEventParams], None]: ...
@on_inform_request.setter
def on_inform_request(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrInformRequestEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The user in an InformRequest packet (SNMPv3) must match the user in the user property. If not, the request is rejected, and a on_bad_packet event is fired before on_inform_request is fired.

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the obj_id, obj_type, and obj_value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

The MessageId parameter identifies the received request.

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

To send a response, the Respond parameter must be set to true. By default, this value is false, which means no response will be sent. The ErrorStatus parameter may also be set to a valid SNMP status code (the default value is 0, which represents no error).

The following is a list of valid SNMP status code values:

0 (noError) No error.
1 (tooBig) The response cannot fit in a single SNMP message.
2 (noSuchName) Variable does not exist.
3 (badValue) Invalid value or syntax.
4 (readOnly) Variable is read-only.
5 (genError) Other error (SNMPv1).
6 (noAccess) Access denied.
7 (wrongType) Wrong object type.
8 (wrongLength) Wrong length.
9 (wrongEncoding) Wrong encoding.
10 (wrongValue) Wrong value.
11 (noCreation) No creation.
12 (inconsistentValue) Inconsistent value.
13 (resourceUnavailable) Resource unavailable.
14 (commitFailed) Commit failed.
15 (undoFailed) Undo failed.
16 (authorizationError) Authorization error.
17 (notWritable) Variable is not writable.
18 (inconsistentName) Inconsistent name.

The ErrorIndex parameter indicates the index of the first variable (object) that caused an error. The default value is 0.

Variable indexes start with 0. ErrorIndex has no meaning when ErrorStatus is 0 (no error).

on_packet_trace Event

Fired for every packet sent or received.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrPacketTraceEventParams(object):
  @property
  def packet() -> bytes: ...

  @property
  def direction() -> int: ...

  @property
  def packet_address() -> str: ...

@on_packet_trace.setter
def on_packet_trace(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrPacketTraceEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The on_packet_trace event shows all the packets sent or received by the class.

Packet contains the full contents of the datagram.

Direction shows the direction of the packet: 1 for incoming packets, and 2 for outgoing packets.

In the case of an incoming packet, PacketAddress and PacketPort identify the source of the packet.

In the case of an outgoing packet, PacketAddress and PacketPort identify the destination of the packet.

on_ready_to_send Event

Fired when the class is ready to send data.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrReadyToSendEventParams(object):
# In class SNMPTCPMgr:
@property
def on_ready_to_send() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrReadyToSendEventParams], None]: ...
@on_ready_to_send.setter
def on_ready_to_send(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrReadyToSendEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The on_ready_to_send event indicates that the underlying TCP/IP subsystem is ready to accept data after a failed data_to_send.

on_report Event

Fired when a Report packet is received.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrReportEventParams(object):
  @property
  def request_id() -> int: ...

  @property
  def snmp_version() -> int: ...

  @property
  def community() -> str: ...

@property
def on_report() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrReportEventParams], None]: ...
@on_report.setter
def on_report(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrReportEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the obj_id, obj_type, and obj_value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

on_response Event

Fired when a GetResponse packet is received.

Syntax

@property
def on_response() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrResponseEventParams], None]: ...
@on_response.setter
def on_response(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrResponseEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The ErrorStatus and ErrorIndex parameters contain information about possible errors. ErrorDescription is a textual description of ErrorStatus. This value is parsed directly from the SNMP response, which will be a one-based value, so a value of i here maps to index i-1 in the objects collection.

The following is a list of valid SNMP status code values:

0 (noError) No error.
1 (tooBig) The response cannot fit in a single SNMP message.
2 (noSuchName) Variable does not exist.
3 (badValue) Invalid value or syntax.
4 (readOnly) Variable is read-only.
5 (genError) Other error (SNMPv1).
6 (noAccess) Access denied.
7 (wrongType) Wrong object type.
8 (wrongLength) Wrong length.
9 (wrongEncoding) Wrong encoding.
10 (wrongValue) Wrong value.
11 (noCreation) No creation.
12 (inconsistentValue) Inconsistent value.
13 (resourceUnavailable) Resource unavailable.
14 (commitFailed) Commit failed.
15 (undoFailed) Undo failed.
16 (authorizationError) Authorization error.
17 (notWritable) Variable is not writable.
18 (inconsistentName) Inconsistent name.

The ErrorIndex parameter indicates the index of the first variable (object) that caused an error. The default value is 0.

Variable indexes start with 0. ErrorIndex has no meaning when ErrorStatus is 0 (no error).

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the obj_id, obj_type, and obj_value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

on_ssl_client_authentication Event

Fired when the client presents its credentials to the server.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrSSLClientAuthenticationEventParams(object):
  @property
  def remote_address() -> str: ...

  @property
  def remote_port() -> int: ...

  @property
  def cert_encoded() -> bytes: ...

@on_ssl_client_authentication.setter
def on_ssl_client_authentication(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrSSLClientAuthenticationEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

This event fires when a client connects to the class and presents a certificate for authentication. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK").

RemoteAddress is the IP address of the connecting client.

RemotePort is the source port of the connecting client.

CertEncoded is the base64 encoded certificate presented by the client.

CertSubject is the subject of the certificate presented by the client.

CertIssuer is the subject of the issuer of the certificate presented by the client.

Status is the stauts of the certificate.

Accept defines whether the certificate is accepted.

on_ssl_server_authentication Event

Fires when connecting to the server.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams(object):
  @property
  def remote_address() -> str: ...

  @property
  def remote_port() -> int: ...

  @property
  def cert_encoded() -> bytes: ...

@on_ssl_server_authentication.setter
def on_ssl_server_authentication(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the connection process or not. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK"). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

RemoteAddress is the IP address of the server.

RemotePort is the source port of the server.

CertEncoded is the base64 encoded certificate presented by the server.

CertSubject is the subject of the certificate presented by the server.

CertIssuer is the subject of the issuer of the certificate presented by the server.

Status is the stauts of the certificate.

Accept defines whether the certificate is accepted.

on_ssl_status Event

Shows the progress of the secure connection.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrSSLStatusEventParams(object):
  @property
  def remote_address() -> str: ...

  @property
  def remote_port() -> int: ...

  @property
  def message() -> str: ...

@on_ssl_status.setter
def on_ssl_status(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrSSLStatusEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. It is used to track the progress of the connection.

RemoteAddress is the IP address of the remote machine.

RemotePort is the port of the remote machine.

Message is the log message.

on_trap Event

Fired when a SNMP trap packet is received.

Syntax

class SNMPTCPMgrTrapEventParams(object):
  @property
  def request_id() -> int: ...

  @property
  def snmp_version() -> int: ...

  @property
  def community() -> str: ...

  @property
  def user() -> str: ...

  @property
  def security_level() -> int: ...

  @property
  def trap_oid() -> str: ...

  @property
  def time_stamp() -> int: ...

  @property
  def source_address() -> str: ...

  @property
  def source_port() -> int: ...

# In class SNMPTCPMgr:
@property
def on_trap() -> Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrTrapEventParams], None]: ...
@on_trap.setter
def on_trap(event_hook: Callable[[SNMPTCPMgrTrapEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

The SNMPTrapMgr class should normally be used to receive traps, since it was designed and contains functionality specifically for that purpose. The SNMPMgr component can only receive traps from the agent that it is has most recently discovered with the discover method.

The TrapOID and TimeStamp parameters contain the Trap OID and TimeStamp. In the case of an SNMPv1 trap, there are two possible scenarios:

First, if the enterprise of the trap is "1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5", TrapOID will be a concatenation of TrapEnterprise and GenericTrap + 1. For instance a TrapOID of "1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.5" has a TrapEnterprise of "1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5" and a GenericTrap of "4".

Second, In all other cases TrapOID will be a concatenation of the values for TrapEnterprise, GenericTrap, and SpecificTrap, separated by '.'.

For SNMPv2 and above, they are read from the variable-value list (if available).

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

The SNMPMgr class is limited to accepting authenticated traps only for the user specified in user and password and from the engine specified in remote_engine_id with time parameters in remote_engine_boots and remote_engine_time (usually this is the SNMP engine discovered through the last call to discover). If authenticated traps come from a different engine, or for a different user, they are ignored, and a on_bad_packet event is fired instead.

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the obj_id, obj_type, and obj_value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

SNMPTCPMgr Config Settings

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the config method.

SNMPTCPManager Config Settings

CheckMessageOrigin:   Whether to match the origin IP address when receiving responses.

This setting specifies whether the class matches the source IP address in the response to the destination IP address of the request. When True (default) the class makes sure that response are received from the same IP to which the request was sent. In most cases this does not need to be changed. If there is a specific reason that responses are expected to originate from a different IP from that which the request was sent, this may be set to False. When False the class will not check the origin of received responses.

CompatibilityMode:   Whether to operate the component in a specific compatibility mode.

This setting will cause the component to operate in a manner different than normal so that it is compatible with third-party products and libraries. The following table lists the possible values for this setting:

0 (default)Component operates normally for greatest compatibility.
1Component uses SNMP4j-compatible encryption (AES192 and AES256).

ContextEngineId:   Sets the context engine id of the SNMP entity.

If set, the context engine id included in the PDU will be set.

ContextName:   Sets the context name of the SNMP entity.

If set, the context name included in the PDU will be set.

DecryptLogPackets:   Whether to decrypt logged packets.

When set to True this setting will cause the class to decrypt packets logged in on_packet_trace. This only applies when using SNMP Version 3. The default is False.

ForceLocalPort:   Forces the class to bind to a specific port.

The default value is True, which makes the class throw an error if local_port is busy. When ForceLocalPort is set to False and the port is busy, the class silently chooses another random port.

MsgMaxSize:   The maximum supported message size.

This setting specifies the maximum supported message size in bytes. This is only applicable when snmp_version is set to 3. This corresponds to the "msgMaxSize" field in the request.

SourceAddress:   The source address of the received packet.

This setting holds the source address of the received packet. This may be queried at any time, including from within an event, and returns the source address of the received packet. This value is read-only.

SourcePort:   The source port of the received packet.

This setting holds the source port of the received packet. This may be queried at any time, including from within an event, and returns the source port of the received packet. This value is read-only.

TimeoutInMilliseconds:   The timeout is treated as milliseconds.

Setting TimeoutInMilliseconds to true causes the class to use the value in timeout as milliseconds instead of seconds, which is the default.

WalkInsideRange:   Stops the SNMP walk if the OID value returned from an agent is outside the table.

When WalkInsideRange is set to true the Walk will continue only while the OID Values returned from the agent are greater than the current OID Value. If an object is returned with an OID value that is out of this range it is not added to the objects collection, the on_error event will fire, and walk will return. The default value is true.

WalkStartOID:   Specifies the OID to be used when a Walk is performed.

When this property is set and walk is called, the first request sent will contain the specified WalkStartOID value. This feature is particularly useful in the case of errors, such as timeouts, that may occur during a Walk. In such a case, you can set WalkStartOID to the last OID returned before the Timeout occurred then call walk again (using the original tableOID parameter value). This will allow you to continue the Walk where it left off (when the Timeout error occurred).

Note that when store_walk_objects is set to true and WalkStartOID is set, the existing entries in objects will be maintained when walk is called and new returned objects will be added (just as if no error occurred in the initial walk call).

TCPClient Config Settings

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the class will use timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the class whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the class returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The local_host setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the local_host setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the class binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by local_port after the connection is established.

local_port cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an eol string.

If an eol string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the on_data_in event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no eol is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the on_data_in event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the class will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the class will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the class to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

SSL Config Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When ssl_provider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the on_ssl_status event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if ssl_provider is set to Platform.

OpenSSLCADir:   The path to a directory containing CA certificates.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The path set by this property should point to a directory containing CA certificates in PEM format. The files each contain one CA certificate. The files are looked up by the CA subject name hash value, which must hence be available. If more than one CA certificate with the same name hash value exist, the extension must be different (e.g. 9d66eef0.0, 9d66eef0.1 etc). OpenSSL recommends to use the c_rehash utility to create the necessary links. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCAFile:   Name of the file containing the list of CA's trusted by your application.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The file set by this property should contain a list of CA certificates in PEM format. The file can contain several CA certificates identified by

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

... (CA certificate in base64 encoding) ...

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

sequences. Before, between, and after the certificates text is allowed which can be used e.g. for descriptions of the certificates. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCipherList:   A string that controls the ciphers to be used by SSL.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The format of this string is described in the OpenSSL man page ciphers(1) section "CIPHER LIST FORMAT". Please refer to it for details. The default string "DEFAULT" is determined at compile time and is normally equivalent to "ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+SSLv2:@STRENGTH".

OpenSSLPrngSeedData:   The data to seed the pseudo random number generator (PRNG).

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

By default OpenSSL uses the device file "/dev/urandom" to seed the PRNG and setting OpenSSLPrngSeedData is not required. If set, the string specified is used to seed the PRNG.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the class will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the class is the same.

SSLCACertFilePaths:   The paths to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

This setting specifies the paths on disk to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

The value is formatted as a list of paths separated by semicolons. The class will check for the existence of each file in the order specified. When a file is found the CA certificates within the file will be loaded and used to determine the validity of server or client certificates.

The default value is:

/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem;/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt;/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt;/etc/pki/tls/cacert.pem

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCheckCRL:   Whether to check the Certificate Revocation List for the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the class will check the Certificate Revocation List specified by the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the class will first obtain the list of CRL URLs from the server certificate's CRL distribution points extension. The class will then make HTTP requests to each CRL endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the class fails with an error.

When set to 0 (default) the CRL check will not be performed by the class. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the CRL check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support CRL. When set to 2, it will perform the CRL check and will throw an error if CRL is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the on_ssl_status event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the class will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when ssl_provider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when ssl_provider is set to Platform include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30)
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C)

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the class will use the internal TLS implementation.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows ssl_provider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is True by default, but can be set to False to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when ssl_provider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the class will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the class will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when ssl_provider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite strength.

Returns the strength of the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when ssl_provider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the class will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the class fails with an error.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: TCPClient.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; TCPClient.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 TCPClient.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and ssl_provider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a class is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
ProcessIdleEvents:   Whether the class uses its internal event loop to process events when the main thread is idle.

If set to False, the class will not fire internal idle events. Set this to False to use the class in a background thread on Mac OS. By default, this setting is True.

SelectWaitMillis:   The length of time in milliseconds the class will wait when DoEvents is called if there are no events to process.

If there are no events to process when do_events is called, the class will wait for the amount of time specified here before returning. The default value is 20.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the class whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the class will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. Setting this to True tells the class to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.
