SSL_up_ref() increments the reference count for an
existing B<SSL> structure.
-SSL_dup() duplicates an existing B<SSL> structure into a new allocated one. All
-settings are inherited from the original B<SSL> structure. Dynamic data (i.e.
-existing connection details) are not copied, the new B<SSL> is set into an
-initial accept (server) or connect (client) state.
+The function SSL_dup() creates and returns a new B<SSL> structure from the same
+B<SSL_CTX> that was used to create I<s>. It additionally duplicates a subset of
+the settings in I<s> into the new B<SSL> object.
+
+For SSL_dup() to work, the connection MUST be in its initial state and
+MUST NOT have yet started the SSL handshake. For connections that are not in
+their initial state SSL_dup() just increments an internal
+reference count and returns the I<same> handle. It may be possible to
+use L<SSL_clear(3)> to recycle an SSL handle that is not in its initial
+state for re-use, but this is best avoided. Instead, save and restore
+the session, if desired, and construct a fresh handle for each connection.
+
+The subset of settings in I<s> that are duplicated are:
