int gnutls_bye(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_close_request_t how);
In case of GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR then the TLS connection gets terminated and further receives and sends will be disallowed. If the return value is zero you may continue using the connection. GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR actually sends an alert containing a close request and waits for the peer to reply with the same message.
In case of GNUTLS_SHUT_WR then the TLS connection gets terminated and further sends will be disallowed. In order to reuse the connection you should wait for an EOF from the peer. GNUTLS_SHUT_WR sends an alert containing a close request.
Note that not all implementations will properly terminate a TLS connection. Some of them, usually for performance reasons, will terminate only the underlying transport layer, thus causing a transmission error to the peer. This error cannot be distinguished from a malicious party prematurely terminating the session, thus this behavior is not recommended.
This function may also return GNUTLS_E_AGAIN or GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED; cf. gnutls_record_get_direction().
