libssh2_keepalive_config - short function description

#include <libssh2.h>
libssh2_keepalive_config(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session,
                         int want_reply,
                         unsigned interval);

Set how often keepalive messages should be sent. want_reply indicates whether the keepalive messages should request a response from the server. interval is number of seconds that can pass without any I/O, use 0 (the default) to disable keepalives. To avoid some busy-loop corner-cases, if you specify an interval of 1 it will be treated as 2.

Note that non-blocking applications are responsible for sending the keepalive messages using libssh2_keepalive_send(3).


Added in libssh2 1.2.5
