Description [src]

Attempts to set up server to listen for connections on “localhost”.

That is, and/or ::1, depending on whether options includes SOUP_SERVER_LISTEN_IPV4_ONLY, SOUP_SERVER_LISTEN_IPV6_ONLY, or neither). If port is specified, server will listen on that port. If it is 0, server will find an unused port to listen on. (In that case, you can use soup_server_get_uris() to find out what port it ended up choosing.

See soup_server_listen() for more details.

The port to listen on, or 0


Type: SoupServerListenOptions

Listening options for this server.


Type: GError **

The return location for a recoverable error.

The argument can be NULL.
If the return location is not NULL, then you must initialize it to a NULL GError*.
The argument will left initialized to NULL by the method if there are no errors.
In case of error, the argument will be set to a newly allocated GError; the caller will take ownership of the data, and be responsible for freeing it.

Return value

Type: gboolean

TRUE on success, FALSE if port could not be bound or any other error occurred (in which case error will be set).
