Hi Junxiao,

First, in my html file I had:

var face = new Face({host: ""});

Now, based on your reply, I changed it to this:

var ws = new WebSocket("ws://");
var face = new Face(ws);

But still not working!!!

In the web page I receive a timeout (Time out for interest /localhost/nfd/faces/list).

And in NFD log:

1469111817.516596 INFO: [WebSocketTransport] [id=0,local=ws://[::ffff:]:9696,remote=wsclient://[::ffff:]:56256] Creating transport
1469111817.516618 INFO: [FaceTable] Added face id=259 remote=wsclient://[::ffff:]:56256 local=ws://[::ffff:]:9696

Hi Omar

This should be possible.
You have to connect to NFD on the local machine with a loopback address, either ws://<> or ws://[::1]:9696/ , in order to be treated as a local face.

Yours, Junxiao

Hi all,

I am currently playing with NDN-js library, and I was wondering if it is possible to query the localhost (e.g.  ndn:/localhost/nfd/faces/list) .
I could do that with node using UnixSocket. Is it possible to do it from a browser (knowing that the browser uses WebSockets) ?
