class Gio::SrvTarget


SRV (service) records are used by some network protocols to provide service-specific aliasing and load-balancing. For example, XMPP (Jabber) uses SRV records to locate the XMPP server for a domain; rather than connecting directly to "" or assuming a specific server hostname like "", an XMPP client would look up the "xmpp-client" SRV record for "", and then connect to whatever host was pointed to by that record.

You can use g_resolver_lookup_service() or g_resolver_lookup_service_async() to find the #GSrvTargets for a given service. However, if you are simply planning to connect to the remote service, you can use #GNetworkService's #GSocketConnectable interface and not need to worry about #GSrvTarget at all.
