is it possible to set up a socket io client running server side on a node js s
I'd like to enable socket-based p2p communications between two or more different node.js application servers. I'm using socket.io to handle all such communication between a given server and the web application it serves - but what I'm looking for is a way to communicate server-to-server.
I had initially assumed it would be as easy as something like this:
var io = require("socket.io");
var socket = io.connect("my remote endpoint");
However, as it turns out the server-side socket.io implementation doesn't offer a "connect" method, only a listen method.
Why is this? Why can't I treat a node application server as a client to a socket.io server running elsewhere? Is there any way that I can achieve this functionality?
