GSS-API Programming Guide

Connecting to the Server

After declaring its variables, call_server() first makes a connection with the server:

if ((s = connect_to_server(host, port)) < 0)
     return -1;

where s is a file descriptor (an int, initially returned by a call to socket()).

connect_to_server() is a simple function that uses sockets to create a connection. Because it doesn't use the GSS-API, it's skipped here. You can see it at connect_to_server().
