SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_server_name_get(gnutls_session_t session, void * data,
       size_t * data_length, unsigned int * type, unsigned int indx);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       void * data will hold the data

       size_t * data_length
                   will hold the data length. Must hold the maximum size
                   of data.

       unsigned int * type
                   will hold the server name indicator type

       unsigned int indx
                   is the index of the server_name

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will allow you to get the name indication (if any),
       a client has sent.  The name indication may be any of the
       enumeration gnutls_server_name_type_t.

       If  type is GNUTLS_NAME_DNS, then this function is to be used by
       servers that support virtual hosting, and the data will be a null
       terminated IDNA ACE string (prior to GnuTLS 3.4.0 it was a UTF-8

       If  data has not enough size to hold the server name
       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER is returned, and  data_length will
       hold the required size.

        indx is used to retrieve more than one server names (if sent by
       the client).  The first server name has an index of 0, the second
       1 and so on.  If no name with the given index exists

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, on UTF-8 decoding
       error GNUTLS_E_IDNA_ERROR is returned, otherwise a negative error
       code is returned.
