Binding to (default when NULL is passed) will bind to all available addresses. port - port to bind to on the remote host. When 0 is passed, the remote host will select the first available dynamic port. bound_port - Populated with the actual port bound on the remote host. Useful when requesting dynamic port numbers. queue_maxsize - Maximum number of pending connections to queue before rejecting further attempts. libssh2_channel_forward_listen(3) is a macro. RETURN VALUE
A newly allocated LIBSSH2_LISTENER instance or NULL on failure. ERRORS

LIBSSH2_ERROR_PROTO - An invalid SSH protocol response was received on the socket. LIBSSH2_ERROR_REQUEST_DENIED - The remote server refused the request. LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN - Marked for non-blocking I/O but the call would block. SEE ALSO
