NAME

gnutls_init - initialize the session to null (null encryption etc...).  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_init(gnutls_session_t * session, gnutls_connection_end_t con_end);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t * session
is a pointer to a gnutls_session_t structure.
gnutls_connection_end_t con_end
indicate if this session is to be used for server or client.
 

DESCRIPTION

This function initializes the current session to null. Every session must be initialized before use, so internal structures can be allocated. This function allocates structures which can only be free'd by calling gnutls_deinit(). Returns zero on success.

con_end can be one of GNUTLS_CLIENT and GNUTLS_SERVER.  

RETURNS

GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
