sasl_server_init(3)		SASL man pages		   sasl_server_init(3)

NAME
       sasl_server_init	- SASL server authentication initialization

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_server_init(const sasl_callback_t *callbacks,
			    const char *appname);

DESCRIPTION
       sasl_server_init() initializes SASL. It must be called before any calls
       to sasl_server_start, and only once per process.	 This call initializes
       all  SASL mechanism drivers (e.g. authentication	mechanisms). These are
       usually found in	the /usr/lib/sasl2 directory but the directory may  be
       overridden  with	 the  SASL_PATH	 environment  variable	(or at compile
       time).

       callbacks specifies the base callbacks for all client connections.  See
       the sasl_callbacks man page for more information.

       appname	is  the	 name of the application. It is	used for where to find
       the default configuration file.

RETURN VALUE
       sasl_server_init	returns	an integer which corresponds  to  one  of  the
       SASL  error  codes. SASL_OK is the only one that	indicates success. All
       others indicate errors and should either	be handled or the  authentica-
       tion session should be quit.

CONFORMING TO
       RFC 4422
