synce_set_connection_filename() sets an alternative connection file name to use.

synce_set_default_connection_filename() resets the connection filename to its default value.

Return Value

Returns true if successful. synce_get_connection_filename() fails and returns false if filename is an invalid pointer, or for any of the reasons synce_get_directory() would fail. synce_set_connection_filename() returns false if filename contains '..' or is too long.
