NAME
libssh2_userauth_password_ex - authenticate a session with username and password SYNOPSIS
#include <libssh2.h> int libssh2_userauth_password_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, const char *username, unsigned int username_len, const char *password, unsigned int password_len, LIBSSH2_PASSWD_CHANGEREQ_FUNC((*passwd_change_cb))); #define libssh2_userauth_password(session, username, password) libssh2_userauth_password_ex((session), (username), strlen(username), (password), strlen(password), NULL) DESCRIPTION
session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3) username - Name of user to attempt plain password authentication for. username_len - Length of username parameter. password - Password to use for authenticating username. password_len - Length of password parameter. passwd_change_cb - If the host accepts authentication but requests that the password be changed, this callback will be issued. If no call- back is defined, but server required password change, authentication will fail. Attempt basic password authentication. Note that many SSH servers which appear to support ordinary password authentication actually have it disabled and use Keyboard Interactive authentication (routed via PAM or another authentication backed) instead. RETURN VALUE
Return 0 on success or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really a failure per se. ERRORS
Some of the errors this function may return include: LIBSSH2_ERROR_ALLOC - An internal memory allocation call failed. LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket. LIBSSH2_ERROR_PASSWORD_EXPIRED - IBSSH2_ERROR_AUTHENTICATION_FAILED - failed, invalid username/password or public/private key. SEE ALSO

NAME
ne_set_server_auth, ne_set_proxy_auth, ne_forget_auth - register authentication callbacks SYNOPSIS
#include <ne_auth.h> typedef int (*ne_auth_creds)(void *userdata, const char *realm, int attempt, char *username, char *password); void ne_set_server_auth(ne_session *session, ne_auth_creds callback, void *userdata); void ne_set_proxy_auth(ne_session *session, ne_auth_creds callback, void *userdata); void ne_forget_auth(ne_session *session); DESCRIPTION
The ne_auth_creds function type defines a callback which is invoked when a server or proxy server requires user authentication for a particular request. The realm string is supplied by the server. The attempt is a counter giving the number of times the request has been retried with different authentication credentials. The first time the callback is invoked for a particular request, attempt will be zero. To retry the request using new authentication credentials, the callback should return zero, and the username and password buffers must contain NUL-terminated strings. The NE_ABUFSIZ constant gives the size of these buffers. Tip If you only wish to allow the user one attempt to enter credentials, use the value of the attempt parameter as the return value of the callback. To abort the request, the callback should return a non-zero value; in which case the contents of the username and password buffers are ignored. The ne_forget_auth function can be used to discard the cached authentication credentials. EXAMPLES
/* Function which prompts for a line of user input: */ extern char *prompt_for(const char *prompt); static int my_auth(void *userdata, const char *realm, int attempts, char *username, char *password) { strncpy(username, prompt_for("Username: "), NE_ABUFSIZ); strncpy(password, prompt_for("Password: "), NE_ABUFSIZ); return attempts; } int main(...) { ne_session *sess = ne_session_create(...); ne_set_server_auth(sess, my_auth, NULL); /* ... */ } AUTHOR
