Hi all,

I have one small issue regarding C based TCF. Can anybody please help?

How client will handle the case if agent die without replying to command
issued and wait endlessly for reply from agent? Does current framework
support this scenerio, when same agent powers up again? Can I resume and
abondon the last command?
Also can somebody provide me some pointer how this can be done? I am
exploring the code so it will help me to arrive to a solution quickly.

Thanks
Karun

Hello Karun,

this is a good question. Since we expect an agent to never die, I'd
rephrase the question a little:

What happens if the connection to an agent is broken during
communications, e.g. due to plugging out a network cable? Are there any
timeouts / exceptions? Is there any retry logic inside the TCF layer, or
would clients of TCF need to implement that on their application layer?

Any ideas or suggestions for code, anyone?

Cheers,
