NAME

       sasl_server_init - SASL server authentication initialization

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_server_init(const sasl_callback_t *callbacks,
                            const char *appname);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_server_init()   initializes   SASL.   It   must   be   called  before  any  calls  to
       sasl_server_start, and only once per process.  This call initializes  all  SASL  mechanism
       drivers  (e.g.  authentication  mechanisms). These are usually found in the /usr/lib/sasl2
       directory but the directory may be overridden with the SASL_PATH environment variable  (or
       at compile time).

       callbacks  specifies the base callbacks for all client connections. See the sasl_callbacks
       man page for more information.

       appname is the name of the  application.  It  is  used  for  where  to  find  the  default
       configuration file.

RETURN VALUE

       sasl_server_init  returns  an  integer  which  corresponds to one of the SASL error 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.
