Struct

GioSrvTarget

Description [src]

struct GSrvTarget {
  /* No available fields */
}

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 “example.com” or assuming a specific server hostname like “xmpp.example.com”, an XMPP client would look up the “xmpp-client” SRV record for “example.com”, 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 GNetworkServices GSocketConnectable interface and not need to worry about GSrvTarget at all.

Constructors

g_srv_target_new

Creates a new GSrvTarget with the given parameters.

Available since: 2.22

Functions

g_srv_target_list_sort

Sorts targets in place according to the algorithm in RFC 2782.

Available since: 2.22

Instance methods

g_srv_target_copy

Copies target.

Available since: 2.22

g_srv_target_free

Frees target.

Available since: 2.22

g_srv_target_get_hostname

Gets targets hostname (in ASCII form; if you are going to present this to the user, you should use g_hostname_is_ascii_encoded() to check if it contains encoded Unicode segments, and use g_hostname_to_unicode() to convert it if it does.)

Available since: 2.22

g_srv_target_get_port

Gets targets port.

Available since: 2.22

g_srv_target_get_priority

Gets targets priority. You should not need to look at this; GResolver already sorts the targets according to the algorithm in RFC 2782.

Available since: 2.22

g_srv_target_get_weight

Gets targets weight. You should not need to look at this; GResolver already sorts the targets according to the algorithm in RFC 2782.

Available since: 2.22
