NAME

       CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT - force a new connection to be used

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT, long fresh);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long.  Set  to  1 to make the next transfer use a new (fresh) connection by force
       instead of trying to re-use an existing one.  This option should be used with caution  and
       only if you understand what it does as it may seriously impact performance.

       Related functionality is CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE(3) which makes sure the connection is closed
       after use so that it won't be re-used.

       Set fresh to 0 to have libcurl attempt re-using an existing connection (default behavior).

DEFAULT

       0
