NAME

       CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH - send credentials to other hosts too

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH,
                                 long goahead);

DESCRIPTION

       Set  the  long  gohead  parameter  to  1L  to make libcurl continue to send authentication
       (user+password) credentials when following locations, even  when  hostname  changed.  This
       option is meaningful only when setting CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3).

       By  default, libcurl will only send given credentials to the initial host name as given in
       the original URL, to avoid leaking username + password to other sites.

DEFAULT

       0

PROTOCOLS

       HTTP

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH, 1L);
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Along with HTTP

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
