Parameters
namestr, optional

Client name (corresponding to samp.name metadata keyword).

descriptionstr, optional

Client description (corresponding to samp.description.text metadata keyword).

metadatadict, optional

Client application metadata in the standard SAMP format.

addrstr, optional

Listening address (or IP). This defaults to 127.0.0.1 if the internet is not reachable, otherwise it defaults to the host name.

portint, optional
