CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT - force a new connection to be used

CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT - force a new connection to be used

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
 
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FRESH_CONNECT, long fresh);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long. Set to 1 to make the next transfer use a new (fresh) connection by force instead of trying to re-use an existing one. This option should be used with caution and only if you understand what it does as it may seriously impact performance.
 
Related functionality is CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE(3) which makes sure the connection is closed after use so that it won't be re-used.
 
Set fresh to 0 to have libcurl attempt re-using an existing connection (default behavior).

DEFAULT

0
