The usual way to connect two or several Oz processes is to use the
Connection module to create a ticket and then to share this ticket by mail, by a shared file system or by a web server. This approach requires an external support for getting the ticket, which can sometimes be a problem. Another more classical approach is to use a combination of the IP adress of the computer to connect to with a well known port number. The two modules here offer such functionality. The
SocketConnection module is equivalent to the
Connection module, except it uses a socket instead of a ticket. The
IPort module is a variation of an Oz
Port with a connection possibility through a socket.
