DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will set the timeouts required for the DTLS
       handshake protocol. The retransmission timeout is the time after
       which a message from the peer is not received, the previous
       messages will be retransmitted. The total timeout is the time
       after which the handshake will be aborted with GNUTLS_E_TIMEDOUT.

       The DTLS protocol recommends the values of 1 sec and 60 seconds
       respectively, and these are the default values.

       To disable retransmissions set a  retrans_timeout larger than the
       total_timeout .
