NAME

       libssh2_userauth_password_ex - authenticate a session with username and password

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>
       int libssh2_userauth_password_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session,
                           const char *username,
                           unsigned int username_len,
                           const char *password,
                           unsigned int password_len,
                           LIBSSH2_PASSWD_CHANGEREQ_FUNC((*passwd_change_cb)));

       #define libssh2_userauth_password(session, username, password) \
        libssh2_userauth_password_ex((session), (username), \
                                     strlen(username), \
                                     (password), strlen(password), NULL)

DESCRIPTION

       session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3)

       username - Name of user to attempt plain password authentication for.

       username_len - Length of username parameter.

       password - Password to use for authenticating username.

       password_len - Length of password parameter.

       passwd_change_cb  -  If  the host accepts authentication but requests that the password be
       changed, this callback will be issued.  If no callback is  defined,  but  server  required
       password change, authentication will fail.

       Attempt  basic password authentication. Note that many SSH servers which appear to support
       ordinary password authentication actually have it disabled and  use  Keyboard  Interactive
       authentication (routed via PAM or another authentication backed) instead.

RETURN VALUE

       Return 0 on success or negative on failure.  It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would
       otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is  a  negative  number,  it  isn't  really  a
       failure per se.

ERRORS

       Some of the errors this function may return include:

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC -  An internal memory allocation call failed.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_PASSWORD_EXPIRED -

       IBSSH2_ERROR_AUTHENTICATION_FAILED  -  failed, invalid username/password or public/private
       key.
