Next: Tracking Neighbors Up: 5.2 Node Methods: Configuring Previous: Address and Port Agent management

Given an agent, the procedure []attach will add the agent to its list of agents_, assign a port number the agent and set its source address, set the target of the agent to be its (, the node's) []entry, and add a pointer to the port demultiplexer at the node (dmux_) to the agent at the corresponding slot in the dmux_ classifier.

Conversely, []detachwill remove the agent from agents_, and point the agent's target, and the entry in the node dmux_ to nullagent.
