    Command:

    SSL_connect

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

            #include <openssl/ssl.h>
    
            int SSL_connect(SSL *ssl);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           SSL_connect() initiates the TLS/SSL handshake with a server. The
           communication channel must already have been set and assigned to the
           ssl by setting an underlying BIO.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           The behaviour of SSL_connect() depends on the underlying BIO.
    
           If the underlying BIO is blocking, SSL_connect() will only return once
           the handshake has been finished or an error occurred.
    
           If the underlying BIO is non-blocking, SSL_connect() will also return
           when the underlying BIO could not satisfy the needs of SSL_connect() to
           continue the handshake, indicating the problem by the return value -1.
           In this case a call to SSL_get_error() with the return value of
           SSL_connect() will yield SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE.
           The calling process then must repeat the call after taking appropriate
           action to satisfy the needs of SSL_connect().  The action depends on
           the underlying BIO. When using a non-blocking socket, nothing is to be
           done, but select() can be used to check for the required condition.
           When using a buffering BIO, like a BIO pair, data must be written into
           or retrieved out of the BIO before being able to continue.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUES

           The following return values can occur:
    
           0   The TLS/SSL handshake was not successful but was shut down
               controlled and by the specifications of the TLS/SSL protocol. Call
               SSL_get_error() with the return value ret to find out the reason.
    
           1   The TLS/SSL handshake was successfully completed, a TLS/SSL
               connection has been established.
    
           <0  The TLS/SSL handshake was not successful, because a fatal error
               occurred either at the protocol level or a connection failure
               occurred. The shutdown was not clean. It can also occur of action
               is need to continue the operation for non-blocking BIOs. Call
               SSL_get_error() with the return value ret to find out the reason.
