Internet connection

Internet connection — Simple TCP/IP connection functions.

Description

A GnomeVFSInetConnection represents a TCP/IP connection. You can either use gnome_vfs_inet_connection_create which will use the gnome_vfs_resolve DNS resolution functions internally or you can do the name resolution yourself and use gnome_vfs_inet_connection_create_from_address to connect to a specific address. After a connection has been established all I/O is done through a GnomeVFSSocket or a GnomeVFSSocketBuffer.
