Usage

2
gSocketClientConnectToService(object, domain, service, cancellable = NULL, 
    .errwarn = TRUE)

Arguments

object

a GSocketConnection

domain

a domain name

service

the name of the service to connect to

cancellable

a GCancellable, or NULL

.errwarn

Whether to issue a warning on error or fail silently

Details

This call looks up the SRV record for service at domain for the "tcp" protocol. It then attempts to connect, in turn, to each of the hosts providing the service until either a connection succeeds or there are no hosts remaining.

Upon a successful connection, a new GSocketConnection is constructed and returned. The caller owns this new object and must drop their reference to it when finished with it.

In the event of any failure (DNS error, service not found, no hosts connectable) NULL is returned and error (if non-NULL) is set accordingly.

Value

A list containing the following elements:

retval

[GSocketConnection] a GSocketConnection if successful, or NULL on error

error

a pointer to a GError, or NULL
