       gnutls_record_set_max_empty_records - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void    gnutls_record_set_max_empty_records(gnutls_session_t   session,
       const unsigned int i);

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       const unsigned int i
		   is the desired value of maximum empty records that  can  be
		   accepted in a row.

       Used  to set the maximum number of empty fragments that can be accepted
       in a row. Accepting  many  empty	 fragments  is	useful	for  receiving
       length-hidden  content,	where empty fragments filled with pad are sent
       to hide the real length of a message. However, a malicious  peer	 could
       send  empty  fragments to mount a DoS attack, so as a safety measure, a
       maximum number of empty fragments is accepted by default. If  you  know
       your  application  must	accept	a given number of empty fragments in a
       row, you can use this function to set the desired value.
