Re: Check if host is available

Hi Andreas,

if I try to connect to a host via ssh_connect() and the host isn't
available the function blocks.
did you set a timeout?
No, thanks for the advice!
Is there a way to check if the host is available without blocking the
whole program?
Sure, you can handle the connection completely on your own and give libssh
just a working file descriptor (socket).

This could be the solution for my next problem. I want to detect if someone for example unplugged the network cable while a ssh session is running.
