Class

GioInetAddress

Description

class Gio.InetAddress : GObject.Object {
  parent_instance: GObject
}

GInetAddress represents an IPv4 or IPv6 internet address. Use g_resolver_lookup_by_name() or g_resolver_lookup_by_name_async() to look up the GInetAddress for a hostname. Use g_resolver_lookup_by_address() or g_resolver_lookup_by_address_async() to look up the hostname for a GInetAddress.

To actually connect to a remote host, you will need a GInetSocketAddress (which includes a GInetAddress as well as a port number).

Ancestors

Constructors

g_inet_address_new_any

Creates a GInetAddress for the “any” address (unassigned/”don’t care”) for family.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_new_from_bytes

Creates a new GInetAddress from the given family and bytes. bytes should be 4 bytes for G_SOCKET_FAMILY_IPV4 and 16 bytes for G_SOCKET_FAMILY_IPV6.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_new_from_string

Parses string as an IP address and creates a new GInetAddress.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_new_loopback

Creates a GInetAddress for the loopback address for family.

since: 2.22

Instance methods

g_inet_address_equal

Checks if two GInetAddress instances are equal, e.g. the same address.

since: 2.30

g_inet_address_get_family

Gets addresss family.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_any

Tests whether address is the “any” address for its family.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_link_local

Tests whether address is a link-local address (that is, if it identifies a host on a local network that is not connected to the Internet).

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_loopback

Tests whether address is the loopback address for its family.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_mc_global

Tests whether address is a global multicast address.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_mc_link_local

Tests whether address is a link-local multicast address.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_mc_node_local

Tests whether address is a node-local multicast address.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_mc_org_local

Tests whether address is an organization-local multicast address.

since: 2.22

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_multicast

Tests whether address is a multicast address.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_is_site_local

Tests whether address is a site-local address such as 10.0.0.1 (that is, the address identifies a host on a local network that can not be reached directly from the Internet, but which may have outgoing Internet connectivity via a NAT or firewall).

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_get_native_size

Gets the size of the native raw binary address for address. This is the size of the data that you get from g_inet_address_to_bytes().

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_to_bytes

Gets the raw binary address data from address.

since: 2.22

g_inet_address_to_string

Converts address to string form.
