       libnuclient - NUFW client authentication library


       #include <nuclient.h>

       NuAuth  *  nu_client_init (const char *nptr,  char *username,  unsigned
       long userid,  char * password,  char * hostname,   unsigned  int  port,
       char protocol,  char ssl_on);

       int nu_client_check (NuAuth * session);

       void nu_client_free (NuAuth *session);


       This manual page documents the libnuclient library.

       Use  nu_client_init  to  initialize a authentication session. Then call
       nu_client_check at regular interval to send  authentication  packet  to
       the  gateway  (if needed). When you’re finished, call nu_client_free to
       free the session.

       Original  packaging  and  informations  and  help  can  be  found  from


       nu_client_init    returns   an   authentication   session   usable   by
       nu_client_check or nu_client_free.

       nu_client_check returns the number  of  packets  authenticated  to  the
       nuauth  server  during  the  call. It returns -1 if an error occur when
       sending authentication packet. Applications MUST  considered  that  the
       session is unusable when they receive this error.


       nu_client_init return NULL it a problem occur during initiation
