`GDBusServer` is a helper for listening to and accepting D-Bus connections.

This can be used to create a new D-Bus server, allowing two peers to use the D-Bus protocol for their own specialized communication. A server instance provided in this way will not perform message routing or implement the `org.freedesktop.DBus` interface.

To just export an object on a well-known name on a message bus, such as the session or system bus, you should instead use [ func@Gio.bus_own_name].

An example of peer-to-peer communication with GDBus can be found in gdbus-example-peer.c.

Note that a minimal `GDBusServer` will accept connections from any peer. In many use-cases it will be necessary to add a [ class@Gio.DBusAuthObserver] that only accepts connections that have successfully authenticated as the same user that is running the `GDBusServer`. Since GLib 2.68 this can be achieved more simply by passing the `G_DBUS_SERVER_FLAGS_AUTHENTICATION_REQUIRE_SAME_USER` flag to the server.
