Hi, i'm searching for a way to know the hostname of a machine connected to my twisted-server.
I use to know the host the method self.transport.getPeer().host, and i have the IP in this way.
But i need to know the hostname. I'm searching for a way like socket.gethostname().

Waiting your answer :D

Something like...


Cheers and Happy coding

self.nick = self.transport.getDestination()
exceptions.AttributeError: 'Server' object has no attribute 'getDestination

How about showing some code??

Anyway the getDestination() should retrieve you the hostname.

Try something like...

peer = self.transport.getPeer()
nick = peer.getDestination()

Cheers and Happy coding

Nothing to do, always the same error:

File "Server.py", line 21, in name
    self.nick = peer.getDestination()
exceptions.AttributeError: 'IPv4Address' object has no attribute 'getDestination

This is the source: http://sprunge.us/Phjj

And like this?

def name(self):
    connector = self.transport.connector
    return connector.getDestination()

I'll install twisted to take a look.

Cheers and Happy coding

File "Server.py", line 20, in name
    connector = self.transport.connector
exceptions.AttributeError: 'Server' object has no attribute 'connector'


I've installed twisted mate.

Do you have client code? Can you post it, or PM it to me?

Cheers and Happy coding

The client is telnet :D
But, i don't think that client is the reason. This method getDestination() doesn't exist in accordance with the interpreter's error.

Wait, this is the server code, right?

How do you connect to it?

Cheers and Happy coding

By telnet

Sorry mate, now I got it! :D

I made consfusion, the country I'm in now has a provider named 'Telnet', and I just stupidlly thought you were talking about it. I'm very sorry.

I'll take a look.

Cheers and Happy coding

Lol, no problem man, i'll wait :)

I'm new ot twisted, but thats all I was able by now to extract as peer info.

But, your implementation does'nt seem right to me.

I'll take a look into twisted, I think I'll write something, meanwhile...

from twisted.protocols.basic import LineOnlyReceiver
from twisted.internet  import reactor
from twisted.internet.protocol import ServerFactory
import time

class ChatConnection(LineOnlyReceiver):

    def __init__(self):
        self.hostlist = []
        self.hostname = ""
        self.master = ""

    def sendLine(self, line):
        self.transport.write(line + '\n')

    def print_time(self):
        return time.strftime("[%H:%M] ", time.localtime(time.time()))

    def name(self):
        self.nick = self.transport.getPeer()
        return ' '.join([str(item) for item in self.nick])
    def connectionMade(self):
        print  self.print_time() + "New connection from " + self.name()
        if self.name == self.hostname:
            self.master = self.transport.getPeer().host
            self.factory.IDandIP[self.name] = self.transport.getPeer().host

        def connectionLost(self, reason):
            print self.print_time() + "Connection lost by", self.name()
            del self.factory.IDandIP[self.name]

        def lineReceived(self, line):
            if line == "/list":
                self.sendLine(self.print_time() + "Online users: \n\t" + str(self.hostlist))
            if line[:6] == "zombie":
                ID = line.split(" : ")[0]
                if ID in self.hostlist:
class Chat(ServerFactory):
    protocol = ChatConnection
    def __init__(self):
        self.IDandIP = {}

print "Waiting connection from clients..."
main = Chat()
reactor.listenTCP(8000, main)
