CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS(3)                            curl_easy_setopt options

NAME

CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS - set protocols allowed to redirect to

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long that holds a bitmask of CURLPROTO_* defines. If used, this bitmask limits what protocols libcurl may use in a transfer that it follows to in a redirect when CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3) is enabled. This allows you to limit specific transfers to only be allowed to use a subset of protocols in redirections. Protocols denied by CURLOPT_PROTOCOLS(3) are not overridden by this option. By default libcurl will allow HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and FTPS on redirect (7.65.2). Older versions of libcurl allowed all protocols on redirect except several disabled for security reasons: Since 7.19.4 FILE and SCP are disabled, and since 7.40.0 SMB and SMBS are also disabled. CURLPROTO_ALL enables all protocols on redirect, including those disabled for security. These are the available protocol defines: CURLPROTO_DICT CURLPROTO_FILE CURLPROTO_FTP CURLPROTO_FTPS CURLPROTO_GOPHER CURLPROTO_HTTP CURLPROTO_HTTPS CURLPROTO_IMAP CURLPROTO_IMAPS CURLPROTO_LDAP CURLPROTO_LDAPS CURLPROTO_POP3 CURLPROTO_POP3S CURLPROTO_RTMP CURLPROTO_RTMPE CURLPROTO_RTMPS CURLPROTO_RTMPT CURLPROTO_RTMPTE CURLPROTO_RTMPTS CURLPROTO_RTSP CURLPROTO_SCP CURLPROTO_SFTP CURLPROTO_SMB CURLPROTO_SMBS CURLPROTO_SMTP CURLPROTO_SMTPS CURLPROTO_TELNET CURLPROTO_TFTP

DEFAULT

All protocols except for FILE, SCP and since 7.40.0 SMB and SMBS.

PROTOCOLS

All

EXAMPLE

curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { /* pass in the URL from an external source */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, argv[1]); /* only allow redirects to HTTP and HTTPS URLs */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_REDIR_PROTOCOLS, CURLPROTO_HTTP | CURLPROTO_HTTPS); /* Perform the request */ curl_easy_perform(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.19.4, before then it would follow all protocols.

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
