NAME

       sasl_client_new - Create a new client authentication object

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_client_new(const char *service,
                       const char *serverFQDN,
                       const char *iplocalport,
                       const char *ipremoteport,
                       const sasl_callback_t *prompt_supp,
                       unsigned flags,
                       sasl_conn_t ** pconn);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_client_new() creates a new SASL context. This context will be used for all SASL calls
       for one connection. It handles both authentication and integrity/encryption  layers  after
       authentication.

       service is the registered name of the service (usually the protocol name) using SASL (e.g.
       "imap").

       serverFQDN is the fully qualified domain name of the server (e.g. "serverhost.cmu.edu").

       iplocalport is the IP and port  of  the  local  side  of  the  connection,  or  NULL.   If
       iplocalport  is NULL it will disable mechanisms that require IP address information.  This
       strings  must   be   in   one   of   the   following   formats:   "a.b.c.d;port"   (IPv4),
       "e:f:g:h:i:j:k:l;port" (IPv6), or "e:f:g:h:i:j:a.b.c.d;port" (IPv6)

       ipremoteport  is  the  IP  and  port  of  the  remote side of the connection, or NULL (see
       iplocalport)

       prompt_supp is a list of client interactions supported that is unique to this  connection.
       If  this  parameter  is  NULL the global callbacks (specified in sasl_client_init) will be
       used. See sasl_callback for more information.

       flags are connection flags (see below)

       pconn is the connection context allocated by the library. This structure will be used  for
       all future SASL calls for this connection.

       Connection Flags

       Flags that may be passed to sasl_server_new() include

       SASL_SUCCESS_DATA
               The protocol supports a server-last send

       SASL_NEED_PROXY
               Force  the  use  of  a mechanism that supports an authorization id that is not the
               authentication id.

RETURN VALUE

       sasl_client_new returns an integer which  corresponds  to  one  of  the  following  codes.
       SASL_OK  is  the  only  one  that indicates success. All others indicate errors and should
       either be handled or the authentication session should be quit.

ERRORS

       SASL_OK Success

       SASL_BADPARAM
               Error in config file or passed parameters

       SASL_NOMECH
               No mechanism meets requested properties

       SASL_NOMEM
               Not enough memory to complete operation
