CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH(3curl_easy_setopt optionCURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH(3)

NAME
       CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH - send	credentials to other hosts too

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode	curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH,
				 long goahead);

DESCRIPTION
       Set  the	 long  gohead parameter	to 1L to make libcurl continue to send
       authentication (user+password) credentials  when	 following  locations,
       even when hostname changed. This	option is meaningful only when setting
       CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3).

       By default, libcurl will	only send given	 credentials  to  the  initial
       host  name  as  given  in the original URL, to avoid leaking username +
       password	to other sites.

DEFAULT
       0

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP

EXAMPLE
       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl)	{
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION,	1L);
	 curl_easy_setopt(curl,	CURLOPT_UNRESTRICTED_AUTH, 1L);
	 curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
       Along with HTTP

RETURN VALUE
       Returns CURLE_OK	if HTTP	is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
