NAME

       CURLOPT_PORT - set remote port number to work with

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PORT, long number);

DESCRIPTION

       This  option  sets  number  to be the remote port number to connect to, instead of the one
       specified in the URL or the default port for the used protocol.

       Usually, you just let the URL decide which port to use but this allows the application  to
       override that.

       While this option accepts a 'long', a port number is usually a 16 bit number and therefore
       using a port number over 65535 will cause a run-time error.

DEFAULT

       By default this is 0 which makes it not used.

PROTOCOLS

       Used for all protocols that speak to a port number.

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PORT, 8080L);
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
