NAME

       libssh2_channel_open_ex - establish a generic session channel

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       LIBSSH2_CHANNEL    *    libssh2_channel_open_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION   *session,   const   char
       *channel_type, unsigned int  channel_type_len,  unsigned  int  window_size,  unsigned  int
       packet_size, const char *message, unsigned int message_len);

       LIBSSH2_CHANNEL * libssh2_channel_open_session(session);

DESCRIPTION

       session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3)

       channel_type  -  Channel  type  to open. Typically one of session, direct-tcpip, or tcpip-
       forward. The SSH2 protocol allowed for additional types including  local,  custom  channel
       types.

       channel_type_len - Length of channel_type

       window_size  - Maximum amount of unacknowledged data remote host is allowed to send before
       receiving an SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_WINDOW_ADJUST packet.

       packet_size - Maximum number of  bytes  remote  host  is  allowed  to  send  in  a  single
       SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_DATA or SSG_MSG_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA packet.

       message - Additional data as required by the selected channel_type.

       message_len - Length of message parameter.

       Allocate  a  new  channel  for  exchanging  data with the server. This method is typically
       called   through   its   macroized   form:    libssh2_channel_open_session(3)    or    via
       libssh2_channel_direct_tcpip(3) or libssh2_channel_forward_listen(3)

RETURN VALUE

       Pointer to a newly allocated LIBSSH2_CHANNEL instance, or NULL on errors.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_CHANNEL_FAILURE -

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