NAME         top

       ldap_start_tls, ldap_start_tls_s, ldap_tls_inplace,
       ldap_install_tls - LDAP TLS initialization routines

LIBRARY         top

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_start_tls(LDAP *ld);

       int ldap_start_tls_s(LDAP *ld, LDAPControl **serverctrls,
       LDAPControl **clientctrls);

       int ldap_tls_inplace(LDAP *ld);

       int ldap_install_tls(LDAP *ld);

DESCRIPTION         top

       These routines are used to initiate TLS processing on an LDAP
       session.  ldap_start_tls_s() sends a StartTLS request to a
       server, waits for the reply, and then installs TLS handlers on
       the session if the request succeeded. The routine returns
       LDAP_SUCCESS if everything succeeded, otherwise it returns an
       LDAP error code.  ldap_start_tls() sends a StartTLS request to a
       server and does nothing else. It returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the
       request was sent successfully.  ldap_tls_inplace() returns 1 if
       TLS handlers have been installed on the specified session, 0
       otherwise.  ldap_install_tls() installs the TLS handlers on the
       given session. It returns LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR if TLS is already
