NAME

       libssh2_sftp_init - open SFTP channel for the given SSH session.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h> #include <libssh2_sftp.h>

       LIBSSH2_SFTP * libssh2_sftp_init(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session);

DESCRIPTION

       session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3)

       Open  a  channel  and  initialize the SFTP subsystem. Although the SFTP subsystem operates
       over the same type of channel as those exported by the Channel API,  the  protocol  itself
       implements  its  own  unique  binary  packet  protocol  which  must  be  managed  with the
       libssh2_sftp_*() family of functions. When  an  SFTP  session  is  complete,  it  must  be
       destroyed using the libssh2_sftp_shutdown(3) function.

RETURN VALUE

       A pointer to the newly allocated SFTP 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_SOCKET_TIMEOUT -

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SFTP_PROTOCOL  -  An  invalid  SFTP  protocol  response  was received on the
       socket, or an SFTP operation caused an errorcode to be returned by the server.

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