Hysteria with PYROmania (special URIs)

I had a need to modify code written using Pyro so that objects on localhost could be exposed remotely.  I have never worked with Pyro before so I was in some hysteria.  I was ready to try though.

There is no definitive guide anywhere using the special names in the URI (actually I found something here and here later).  Love bites.

If you look at Pryo servers, the URI from the daemon is a very long string like the following:

PYRO://127.0.0.1:62100/c0a8006516bc7752e7526becdb059ce9

That is a rather long URI and the number changes on every service start up (obviously like a GUID or time based id).  So on the client side, is this my URI?  Is it too late for love?

Well, no. Here is a quick guide for how to use the special URI strings and you can be a Pyro Animal.

For name servers, you can use:

PYRONAME://<hostname>[:<port>]/<objectname>

For straight remote access (otherwise called the regular method):

PYROLOC://<hostname>[:<port>]/<objectname>

So, it isn’t as bad as it initially seems. No Foolin’.  Finally, Armageddon It.
