A HL7 input node used to listen for incoming HL7 messages on a specified port and sending them to a pipeline to be processed and forwarded.


The HL7 Stream Input Node is a HL7 service listener started on a specified port to process any inbound HL7 requests.   The listener can be optionally set to work over SSL by selecting the secure socket option.  Messages that are received are sent to the output node connected to the listening node.  The node sends a reply to the transmitting system, the nature of which depends upon the result of passing the message down the pipeline.  By default, the listener accepts all message types.
