       gnutls_server_name_set - API function


       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_server_name_set(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_server_name_type_t type, const
       void * name, size_t name_length);


       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_server_name_type_t type
                   specifies the indicator type

       const void * name
                   is a string that contains the server name.

       size_t name_length
                   holds the length of name


       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  type  type.   In  case  of  GNUTLS_NAME_DNS,  an  ASCII
       zero-terminated  domain  name 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.
