DESCRIPTION

This function is to be used by clients that want to inform (via a TLS extension mechanism) the server of the name they connected to. This should be used by clients that connect to servers that do virtual hosting.

The value of name depends on the ind type. In case of GNUTLS_NAME_DNS, an ASCII or UTF-8 null terminated string, without the trailing dot, is expected. IPv4 or IPv6 addresses are not permitted.

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (zero) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
