g_socket_leave_multicast_group (
  GSocket* socket,
  GInetAddress* group,
  gboolean source_specific,
  const gchar* iface,
  GError** error


Removes socket from the multicast group defined by group, iface, and source_specific (which must all have the same values they had when you joined the group).

socket remains bound to its address and port, and can still receive unicast messages after calling this.

To unbind to a given source-specific multicast address, use g_socket_leave_multicast_group_ssm() instead.

Available since: 2.32



Type: GInetAddress

A GInetAddress specifying the group address to leave.

The data is owned by the caller of the function.

Type: gboolean

TRUE if source-specific multicast was used.


Type: const gchar*

Interface used.

The argument can be NULL.
The data is owned by the caller of the function.
The value is a NUL terminated UTF-8 string.

Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
