NAME

       libssh2_channel_forward_listen_ex - listen to inbound connections

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       LIBSSH2_LISTENER * libssh2_channel_forward_listen_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, char *host,
       int port, int *bound_port, int queue_maxsize);

       LIBSSH2_LISTENER * libssh2_channel_forward_listen(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, int port);

DESCRIPTION

       Instruct the remote SSH server to begin listening  for  inbound  TCP/IP  connections.  New
       connections     will     be     queued     by    the    library    until    accepted    by
       libssh2_channel_forward_accept(3).

       session - instance as returned by libssh2_session_init().

       host - specific address to bind to on the remote host. Binding to  0.0.0.0  (default  when
       NULL is passed) will bind to all available addresses.

       port  -  port to bind to on the remote host. When 0 is passed, the remote host will select
       the first available dynamic port.

       bound_port - Populated with the  actual  port  bound  on  the  remote  host.  Useful  when
       requesting dynamic port numbers.

       queue_maxsize  -  Maximum  number of pending connections to queue before rejecting further
       attempts.

       libssh2_channel_forward_listen(3) is a macro.

RETURN VALUE

       A newly allocated LIBSSH2_LISTENER instance or NULL on failure.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC - An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_PROTO - An invalid SSH protocol response was received on the socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_REQUEST_DENIED - The remote server refused the request.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN - Marked for non-blocking I/O but the call would block.
