NAME
       sasl_server_init - SASL server authentication initialization



SYNOPSIS
       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_server_init(const sasl_callback_t *callbacks,
                            const char *appname);


DESCRIPTION
       sasl_server_init() initializes SASL. It must be called before any calls
       to sasl_server_start, and only once per process.  This call initializes
       all  SASL mechanism drivers (e.g. authentication mechanisms). These are
       usually found in(1,8) the /usr/lib/sasl2 directory but the directory may  be
       overridden  with  the  SASL_PATH  environment  variable  (or at compile
       time(1,2,n)).

       callbacks specifies the base callbacks for all client connections.  See
       the sasl_callbacks man(1,5,7) page for more information.

       appname  is  the  name of the application. It is used for where to find
       the default configuration file.



RETURN VALUE
       sasl_server_init returns an integer which corresponds  to  one  of  the
       SASL  error(8,n)  codes. SASL_OK is the only one that indicates success. All
       others indicate errors and should either be handled or the  authentica-
       tion session should be quit.
