Method

GioSocketListeneradd_inet_port

Declaration

gboolean
g_socket_listener_add_inet_port (
  GSocketListener* listener,
  guint16 port,
  GObject* source_object,
  GError** error
)

Description

Helper function for g_socket_listener_add_address() that creates a TCP/IP socket listening on IPv4 and IPv6 (if supported) on the specified port on all interfaces.

source_object will be passed out in the various calls to accept to identify this particular source, which is useful if you’re listening on multiple addresses and do different things depending on what address is connected to.

Call g_socket_listener_close() to stop listening on port; this will not be done automatically when you drop your final reference to listener, as references may be held internally.

Available since:2.22
