[Help-gnutls] RE: GNU TLS 2.2.4 installation

Here is how I am calling the gnutls client:

gnutls-cli -d 10000 -p 6443 testserver

        testserver - name of the machine running the ssl server.
        6443 - port on which the server is listening.

Is this the right way of sending the servername extension to my ssl server?

With this, I am seeing that the gnu cli shows the following in its output:

|<2>| EXT[9dc5888]: Sending extension SERVER_NAME

My doubt is:

What is the difference between -srpusername and the field "testserver" in

"gnutls-cli -d 10000 -p 6443 testserver"

Thanks Simon.

So, the argument "" is the name of my SSL server?

You don't have modify any source code to test it, just use the
gnutls-cli tool like this:

gnutls-cli -p 4711 -d 4711

You'll see it send the extension if you see this:

|<2>| EXT[a04e070]: Sending extension SERVER_NAME
