class Gio::NetworkAddress


#GNetworkAddress provides an easy way to resolve a hostname and then attempt to connect to that host, handling the possibility of multiple IP addresses and multiple address families.

The enumeration results of resolved addresses may be cached as long as this object is kept alive which may have unexpected results if alive for too long.

See #GSocketConnectable for an example of using the connectable interface.

Constructor Detail

def : String, port : UInt16) : self #

Creates a new #GSocketConnectable for connecting to the given @hostname and @port.

Note that depending on the configuration of the machine, a @hostname of localhost may refer to the IPv4 loopback address only, or to both IPv4 and IPv6; use g_network_address_new_loopback() to create a #GNetworkAddress that is guaranteed to resolve to both addresses.

def #

Initialize a new NetworkAddress.

def*, hostname : String? = nil, port : UInt32? = nil, scheme : String? = nil) #

def self.new_loopback(port : UInt16) : self #

Creates a new #GSocketConnectable for connecting to the local host over a loopback connection to the given @port. This is intended for use in connecting to local services which may be running on IPv4 or IPv6.

The connectable will return IPv4 and IPv6 loopback addresses, regardless of how the host resolves localhost. By contrast, g_network_address_new() will often only return an IPv4 address when resolving localhost, and an IPv6 address for localhost6.

g_network_address_get_hostname() will always return localhost for a #GNetworkAddress created with this constructor.
