sasl_client_new - Create a new client authentication object
int sasl_client_new(const char *service,
const char *serverFQDN,
const char *iplocalport,
const char *ipremoteport,
const sasl_callback_t *prompt_supp,
sasl_conn_t ** pconn);
creates a new SASL context. This context will be used for all SASL calls for one connection. It handles both authentication and integrity/encyption layers after authentication.

is the IP and port of the local side of the connection, or NULL. If
iplocalport is NULL it will disable mechanisms that require IP address
information. This strings must be in one of the following formats:
"a.b.c.d;port" (IPv4), "e:f:g:h:i:j:k:l;port" (IPv6),
or "e:f:g:h:i:j:a.b.c.d;port" (IPv6)
is the IP and port of the remote side of the connection, or NULL (see

is the conection context allocated by the library. This structure will be used for all future SASL calls for this connection.
Flags that may be passed to
The protocol supports a server-last send
Force the use of a mechanism that supports an authorization id that is
not the authentication id.
sasl_client_new returns an integer which corresponds to one of the
following codes. SASL_OK is the only one that indicates success. All
others indicate errors and should either be handled or the
authentication session should be quit.
