NAME gnutls_record_set_max_size - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

ARGUMENTS gnutls_session_t session is a gnutls_session_t structure.

DESCRIPTION This function sets the maximum record packet size in this connection. This property can only be set to clients. The server may choose not to accept the requested size.

Acceptable values are 512(=2^9), 1024(=2^10), 2048(=2^11) and 4096(=2^12). The requested record size does get in effect immediately only while sending data. The receive part will take effect after a suc- cessful handshake.

This function uses a TLS extension called max record size. Not all TLS implementations use or even understand this extension.

RETURNS On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (zero) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
