Need some help with my first Twisted program

Discussion in 'Python' started by McCann, Brian, Oct 19, 2007.

  1. I posted this to the Twisted list...figured I'd try here too.

    I'm looking for what is probably an simple solution I can't figure out
    on my own. I'm writing an SSH server based on the example on the web
    (using conch). I'm trying to figure out how to detect when the client
    exists (for example, when I just close out PuTTY), but I can't get this
    to work right. Looking through the API docs I found "connectionLost()",
    which I put in my protocol class (EchoProtocol in the example), but it's
    never getting called. Here's my connectionLost def:

    def connectionLost(self,reason):
    print "lost:%s" %reason
    self.alive = False

    Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

  2. Didn't you get an answer? The cracks for special topics are usually
    No, since the definition of a never called function won't help.

    Try the following standard strategy: Make a copy of your project and
    reduce it (removing functionality) until the error doesn't appear
    anymore. If it does *not* vanish, post your short code here or in
    the Twisted list.

    Regards & happy hunting,
