-accepthostname command-line option (pr3287)

Sets an alternate name that is used to compare against the name returned in the host's TLS certificate. This name can also be supplied by appending =acceptname to the hostname (see host name syntax).

This value is ignored when the -noverifycert command-line option is supplied.

This option is needed when the host certificate contains a name other than the one used to connect to it, or when a numeric host address must be used in place of a name to make the connection.

Examples

-accepthostname foo.bar.com
