NAME

       libnuclient - NUFW client authentication library

SYNOPSIS

       #include <nuclient.h>

       NuAuth * nu_client_init (const char *nptr,  char *username,  unsigned long userid,  char *
       password,  char * hostname,  unsigned int port,  char protocol,  char ssl_on);

       int nu_client_check (NuAuth * session);

       void nu_client_free (NuAuth *session);

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents the libnuclient library.

       Use nu_client_init to initialize a authentication session. Then  call  nu_client_check  at
       regular  interval  to  send  authentication packet to the gateway (if needed). When you're
       finished, call nu_client_free to free the session.

       Original packaging and informations and help can be found from http://www.nufw.org/

RETURN VALUE

       nu_client_init  returns  an  authentication   session   usable   by   nu_client_check   or
       nu_client_free.

       nu_client_check  returns  the  number of packets authenticated to the nuauth server during
       the call. It returns -1 if an error occur when sending authentication packet. Applications
       MUST considered that the session is unusable when they receive this error.

ERRORS

       nu_client_init return NULL it a problem occur during initiation
