SSL_set_connect_state(3SSL) OpenSSL SSL_set_connect_state(3SSL)
SSL_set_connect_state, SSL_get_accept_state - prepare SSL object to
work in client or server mode
void SSL_set_connect_state(SSL *ssl);
void SSL_set_accept_state(SSL *ssl);
SSL_set_connect_state() sets ssl to work in client mode.
SSL_set_accept_state() sets ssl to work in server mode.
When the SSL_CTX object was created with SSL_CTX_new(3), it was either
assigned a dedicated client method, a dedicated server method, or a
generic method, that can be used for both client and server
connections. (The method might have been changed with
SSL_CTX_set_ssl_version(3) or SSL_set_ssl_method().)
When beginning a new handshake, the SSL engine must know whether it
must call the connect (client) or accept (server) routines. Even though
it may be clear from the method chosen, whether client or server mode
was requested, the handshake routines must be explicitly set.
When using the SSL_connect(3) or SSL_accept(3) routines, the correct
handshake routines are automatically set. When performing a transparent
negotiation using SSL_write(3) or SSL_read(3), the handshake routines
must be explicitly set in advance using either SSL_set_connect_state()
SSL_set_connect_state() and SSL_set_accept_state() do not return
ssl(3), SSL_new(3), SSL_CTX_new(3), SSL_connect(3), SSL_accept(3),
SSL_write(3), SSL_read(3), SSL_do_handshake(3),
