SSL_connect(3)			    OpenSSL			SSL_connect(3)

NAME
       SSL_connect - initiate the TLS/SSL handshake with an TLS/SSL server

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int SSL_connect(SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_connect() initiates the TLS/SSL handshake with a server. The commu‐
       nication 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:

       1   The TLS/SSL handshake was successfully completed, a TLS/SSL connec‐
	   tion has been established.

       0   The TLS/SSL handshake was not successful but was shut down con‐
	   trolled and by the specifications of the TLS/SSL protocol. Call
	   SSL_get_error() with the return value ret to find out the reason.

       <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.
