MBS( "Socket.SSL.Initialize"; SocketID )   More


Parameter Description Example
SocketID The socket ID received by Socket.Connect function. $sock


Returns OK or error.


Initializes a SSL connection.
First you need to create TCP socket and accept or connect.
Optionally you can call Socket.SSL.Prepare first.
After Socket.SSL.Initialize you can call Socket.SSL.Connect or Socket.SSL.Accept.

Instead of using this SSL socket, please consider letting CURL do the job: Use CURL.SetOptionConnectOnly to let CURL connect and than send data using CURL.SendData and CURL.SendText. For receiving, please use CURL.ReceiveData and CURL.ReceiveText. This gives you much more SSL options and proxy support.
