NAME

       upscli_connect - Open a connection to a NUT upsd

SYNOPSIS

       #include <upsclient.h>

       int upscli_connect(UPSCONN_t *ups, const char *host, int port, int flags);

DESCRIPTION

       The upscli_connect() function takes the pointer ups to a UPSCONN_t state structure and
       opens a TCP connection to the host on the given port.

       flags may be either UPSCLI_CONN_TRYSSL to try a SSL connection, or UPSCLI_CONN_REQSSL to
       require a SSL connection.

       If SSL mode is required, this function will only return successfully if it is able to
       establish a SSL connection with the server. Possible reasons for failure include no SSL
       support on the server, and if upsclient itself hasn’t been compiled with SSL support.

       You must call upscli_disconnect(3) when finished with a connection, or your program will
       slowly leak memory and file descriptors.

RETURN VALUE

       The upscli_connect() function modifies the UPSCONN_t structure and returns 0 on success,
       or -1 if an error occurs.
