      My aim is as follows.

     Step 1:- Run an audio player in Ubuntu. Look at the client name it has generated in the pavucontrol gui's client tab. Let us assume that the client created is "test"

     Step 2:- Try to connect to the client using a pulse audio function. I used an example code available on the net to do a connect.

    // Create a mainloop API and connection to the default server
    pa_ml = pa_threaded_mainloop_new();
    pa_mlapi = pa_threaded_mainloop_get_api(pa_ml);
    context = pa_context_new(pa_mlapi, "test"); // I have the same client name.

    // This function connects to the pulse server
    pa_context_connect(context, NULL, 0, NULL);

    // This function defines a callback so the server will tell us its state.
    //pa_context_set_state_callback(context, state_cb, NULL);
    pa_context_set_state_callback(context, context_state_cb, NULL);

I am kind of sure I am using the wrong function to connect to an existing client. Can anybody tell me which pulse audio function needs to be used for this purpose?
