GNet is a simple network library. It is written in C, object-oriented, and built upon GLib. It is intended to be small, fast, easy-to-use, and easy to port. The interface is similar to the interface for Java's network library.
According to the GNet reference below,
GNet is very soon (with the release of GLib 2.22.0) going to be deprecated and replaced by the newly added platform-independent network and socket abstraction layer in GLib/Gio
- TCP "client" and "server" sockets.
- UDP and IP Multicast sockets.
- High-level TCP connection and server objects.
- GConnHttp - HTTP connection object.
- Asynchronous socket IO.
- Internet address abstraction.
- Asynchronous DNS lookup.
- IPv4 and IPv6 support.
- Byte packing and unpacking.
