I2NP Ping

I2P currently doesn't provide a possibility to ping all types of destinations, ie. non-streaming dests too. This is a problem to uptime sites, which want to provide uptime stats for non-streaming dests too. The solution would be to add a new I2NP message, which would used for pings.

Difficulty

easy

Monotone branch

  • [branch:i2p.i2p i2p.i2p]

Notes

  • the core lib would require a ping(Destination) method added to the Session interface
  • the router has to support that new I2NP message]
