NAME

       CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS - set protocols allowed to redirect to

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS, long bitmask);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass a long that holds a bitmask of CURLPROTO_* defines. If used, this bitmask limits what
       protocols libcurl  may  use  in  a  transfer  that  it  follows  to  in  a  redirect  when
       CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3)  is enabled. This allows you to limit specific transfers to only
       be allowed to use a subset of protocols in redirections.

       Protocols denied by CURLOPT_PROTOCOLS(3) are not overridden by this option.

       By default libcurl will allow HTTP, HTTPS, FTP  and  FTPS  on  redirect  (7.65.2).   Older
       versions of libcurl allowed all protocols on redirect except several disabled for security
       reasons: Since 7.19.4 FILE and SCP are disabled, and since 7.40.0 SMB and  SMBS  are  also
       disabled.  CURLPROTO_ALL  enables  all protocols on redirect, including those disabled for
       security.

       These are the available protocol defines:
       CURLPROTO_DICT
       CURLPROTO_FILE
       CURLPROTO_FTP
       CURLPROTO_FTPS
       CURLPROTO_GOPHER
       CURLPROTO_HTTP
       CURLPROTO_HTTPS
       CURLPROTO_IMAP
       CURLPROTO_IMAPS
       CURLPROTO_LDAP
       CURLPROTO_LDAPS
       CURLPROTO_POP3
       CURLPROTO_POP3S
       CURLPROTO_RTMP
       CURLPROTO_RTMPE
       CURLPROTO_RTMPS
       CURLPROTO_RTMPT
       CURLPROTO_RTMPTE
       CURLPROTO_RTMPTS
       CURLPROTO_RTSP
       CURLPROTO_SCP
       CURLPROTO_SFTP
       CURLPROTO_SMB
       CURLPROTO_SMBS
       CURLPROTO_SMTP
       CURLPROTO_SMTPS
       CURLPROTO_TELNET
       CURLPROTO_TFTP

DEFAULT

       All protocols except for FILE, SCP and since 7.40.0 SMB and SMBS.

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         /* pass in the URL from an external source */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, argv[1]);

         /* only allow redirects to HTTP and HTTPS URLs */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS,
                          CURLPROTO_HTTP | CURLPROTO_HTTPS);

         /* Perform the request */
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Added in 7.19.4, before then it would follow all protocols.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
