=head1 NAME
SSL_set_connect_state, SSL_set_accept_state, SSL_is_server
- functions for manipulating and examining the client or server mode of an SSL object
#include <openssl/ssl.h>
void SSL_set_connect_state(SSL *ssl);
void SSL_set_accept_state(SSL *ssl);
int SSL_is_server(const SSL *ssl);
SSL_set_connect_state() sets B<ssl> to work in client mode.
SSL_set_accept_state() sets B<ssl> to work in server mode.
SSL_is_server() checks if B<ssl> is working in server mode.
=head1 NOTES
When the SSL_CTX object was created with L<SSL_CTX_new(3)>,
it was either assigned a dedicated client method, a dedicated server
method, or a generic method, that can be used for both client and
server connections. (The method might have been changed with
L<SSL_CTX_set_ssl_version(3)> or
When beginning a new handshake, the SSL engine must know whether it must
call the connect (client) or accept (server) routines. Even though it may
be clear from the method chosen, whether client or server mode was
requested, the handshake routines must be explicitly set.
When using the L<SSL_connect(3)> or
L<SSL_accept(3)> routines, the correct handshake
routines are automatically set. When performing a transparent negotiation
using L<SSL_write_ex(3)>, L<SSL_write(3)>, L<SSL_read_ex(3)>, or L<SSL_read(3)>,
the handshake routines must be explicitly set in advance using either
SSL_set_connect_state() or SSL_set_accept_state().
If SSL_is_server() is called before SSL_set_connect_state() or
SSL_set_accept_state() is called (either automatically or explicitly),
the result depends on what method was used when SSL_CTX was created with
L<SSL_CTX_new(3)>. If a generic method or a dedicated server method was
passed to L<SSL_CTX_new(3)>, SSL_is_server() returns 1; otherwise, it returns 0.
SSL_set_connect_state() and SSL_set_accept_state() do not return diagnostic
SSL_is_server() returns 1 if B<ssl> is working in server mode or 0 for client mode.
