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 as well. The solution would be to add a new I2NP message, which would used for pings. This project involves patching the I2CP interface to support the new ping method. Probably adding a new I2NP message is required as well.

Difficulty

easy

Monotone branch

  • [branch:i2p.i2p i2p.i2p]

Notes

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