Yes. On the server side you set the number of DH prime bits the server offers 
in maximum. You will notice that your GnuTLS initialization process will take 
longer the higher you set the DH prime bits because generation takes longer.

You should regularly re-call gnutls_dh_set_prime_bits for security reasons.

So long
