Constructor

GioNetworkAddressnew_loopback

Declaration

GSocketConnectable*
g_network_address_new_loopback (
  guint16 port
)

Description

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.
