I can't find the net::* RPC APIs under https://github.com/paritytech/substrate/tree/be259234bfee056bef970ac372e04a74411c5224/client/rpc-api.

There are three net APIs, netListening, netPeerCount and netVersion.

I'm curious about where they were defined.

I can find all the other RPC APIs under that folder.

  • I'm confused, why do you think that these apis exist?

  • I could curl this. Also, I could use polkadotapps - rpc calls - net send this. polkadot.js.org/apps/… Maybe my chain's Substrate is too old? it's at polkadot-v0.9.16.

Thanks, @bkchr. His comment inspires me.

I found this is a frontier RPC component.
