When a Create Network Stream Writer Endpoint function runs, it creates a writer endpoint and uses the URL you specify in the reader url input to connect to a reader endpoint that you create with the Create Network Stream Reader Endpoint function. This connection results in a valid network stream.

Wiring this input is just one way of creating a valid network stream. You also can leave the reader url input unwired. However, in this situation, you must wire the URL of a writer endpoint to the writer url input of the Create Network Stream Reader Endpoint function. Both of these methods are equivalent and result in a valid network stream by connecting the reader and writer endpoints together.

The following table shows examples of each of these methods.

Writer Endpoint Reader Endpoint Notes

If you configure the endpoints in this manner, the writer endpoint establishes a connection with the reader endpoint. Therefore, you can change the writer endpoint that connects to the reader endpoint.

If you configure the endpoints in this manner, the reader endpoint establishes a connection with the writer endpoint. Therefore, you can change the reader endpoint that connects to the writer endpoint.
