Re: [libvirt] Host IP Address



Never use gethostbyname in any new code. It is long since obsolete, not
thread safe and is hardcoded to only work with IPv4.

There is a good exmaple of how to use the modern replacemenbt, getaddrinfo(),
to resolve hostnames here:

Oh, sorry, I wasn't aware of that. Thank you for the hint.

Ciao

Thanks Daniel and Max for all the help.

Thanks and Regards
