Overview

The transport layer represents the lowest level of the SSH protocol, and implements basic message exchanging and protocol initialization. It will never be instantiated directly (unless you really know what you're about), but will instead be created for you automatically when you create a new SSH session via Net::SSH.start.

DEFAULT_PORT =

#initialize(host, options = {}) ⇒ Session

Instantiates a new transport layer abstraction. This will block until the initial key exchange completes, leaving you with a ready-to-use transport session.

      string << "," << string2

#next_messageObject

Blocks until a new packet is available to be read, and returns that packet. See #poll_message.


163
164
165
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 163

def next_message
  poll_message(:block)
end

#peerObject

Returns a hash of information about the peer (remote) side of the socket, including :ip, :port, :host, and :canonized (see #host_as_string).


157
158
159
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 157

def peer
  @peer ||= { :ip => socket.peer_ip, :port => @port.to_i, :host => @host, :canonized => host_as_string }
end

#poll_message(mode = :nonblock, consume_queue = true) ⇒ Object

Tries to read the next packet from the socket. If mode is :nonblock (the default), this will not block and will return nil if there are no packets waiting to be read. Otherwise, this will block until a packet is available. Note that some packet types (DISCONNECT, IGNORE, UNIMPLEMENTED, DEBUG, and KEXINIT) are handled silently by this method, and will never be returned.

If a key-exchange is in process and a disallowed packet type is received, it will be enqueued and otherwise ignored. When a key-exchange is not in process, and consume_queue is true, packets will be first read from the queue before the socket is queried.

end

#push(packet) ⇒ Object

Adds the given packet to the packet queue. If the queue is non-empty, #poll_message will return packets from the queue in the order they were received.


225
226
227
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 225

def push(packet)
  @queue.push(packet)
end

#rekey!Object

Requests a rekey operation, and blocks until the operation completes. If a rekey is already pending, this returns immediately, having no effect.

145

def rekey!
  if !algorithms.pending?
    algorithms.rekey!
    wait { algorithms.initialized? }
  end
end

#rekey_as_neededObject

Returns immediately if a rekey is already in process. Otherwise, if a rekey is needed (as indicated by the socket, see PacketStream#if_needs_rekey?) one is performed, causing this method to block until it completes.


150
151
152
153
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 150

def rekey_as_needed
  return if algorithms.pending?

end

#send_message(message) ⇒ Object

Sends the given message via the packet stream, blocking until the entire message has been sent.


231
232
233
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 231

def send_message(message)
  socket.send_packet(message)
end

#service_request(service) ⇒ Object

Returns a new service_request packet for the given service name, ready for sending to the server.


133
134
135
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 133

def service_request(service)
  Net::SSH::Buffer.from(:byte, SERVICE_REQUEST, :string, service)
end

#shutdown!Object

Performs a “hard” shutdown of the connection. In general, this should never be done, but it might be necessary (in a rescue clause, for instance, when the connection needs to close but you don't know the status of the underlying protocol's state).


126
127
128
129
# File 'lib/net/ssh/transport/session.rb', line 126

def shutdown!
  error { "forcing connection closed" }
  socket.close
end

#waitObject

Waits (blocks) until the given block returns true. If no block is given, this just waits long enough to see if there are any pending packets. Any packets read are enqueued (see #push).
