NAME
       gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void gnutls_handshake_set_max_packet_length(gnutls_session_t session, size_t max);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       size_t max  is the maximum number.

DESCRIPTION
       This  function  will set the maximum size of all handshake messages.  Handshakes over this
       size are rejected with GNUTLS_E_HANDSHAKE_TOO_LARGE error code.	The default value is 48kb
       which is typically large enough.  Set this to 0 if you do not want to set an upper limit.

       The  reason  for  restricting  the  handshake message sizes are to limit Denial of Service
       attacks.
