SSL_set_session - set a TLS/SSL session to be used during
int SSL_set_session(SSL *ssl, SSL_SESSION *session);
SSL_set_session() sets session to be used when the TLS/SSL
connection is to be established. SSL_set_session() is only
useful for TLS/SSL clients. When the session is set, the
reference count of session is incremented by 1. If the
session is not reused, the reference count is decremented
again during SSL_connect(). Whether the session was reused
can be queried with the SSL_session_reused(3) call.
If there is already a session set inside ssl (because it
was set with SSL_set_session() before or because the same
ssl was already used for a connection), SSL_SESSION_free()
will be called for that session.
SSL_SESSION objects keep internal link information about
the session cache list, when being inserted into one
SSL_CTX object's session cache. One SSL_SESSION object,
regardless of its reference count, must therefore only be
used with one SSL_CTX object (and the SSL objects created
from this SSL_CTX object).
The following return values can occur:
0 The operation failed; check the error stack to find
out the reason.
1 The operation succeeded.
