    Command:

    conserver.passwd

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           username:password
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  conserver.passwd file is the user authentication and authorization
           file for conserver(8).  Upon each incoming client connection, conserver
           opens  and  reads  the conserver.passwd file, so edits to the file take
           effect immediately.  It reads only until the first username match.
    
           Blank lines and  comment  lines  (those  beginning  with  a  ''#''  and
           optional  leading whitespace) are ignored.  Non-ignored lines beginning
           with whitespace are considered  continuations  of  the  previous  line.
           This  allows  you to span one logical line over many physical lines and
           insert comments wherever appropriate.
    
           Each logical line consists of two colon-separated fields.  Leading  and
           trailing white space in each field is ignored.
    
           username
                  the  login  name of the authorized user, or the string ''*any*''
                  to match any user.  This is compared against the  name  sent  by
                  the  console  client,  based either on the user's identity or on
                  the -l option.  Since conserver only  uses  the  first  username
                  match, a ''*any*'' entry will apply to any user without an entry
                  earlier in the file.
    
           password
                  the encrypted password, or the string ''*passwd*''  to  indicate
                  that  conserver should look up the user's password in the system
                  passwd (or shadow) database.  If PAM support  has  been  enabled
                  (--with-pam),  PAM  lookups  will  be done instead of passwd (or
                  shadow) lookups (you may need to edit  /etc/pam.conf  or  create
                  /etc/pam.d/conserver).   If this field is empty, password check-
                  ing is bypassed for this user.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLE

           mary:r71mXjfALB5Ak      Mary uses the password specified above; it does
                                   not  matter whether she has a login on the con-
                                   server host.
    
           fred:*passwd*           Fred may connect only with  his  regular  login
                                   password on the conserver host.
    
           bozo:*                  Bozo is only allowed to access a console if his
                                   password isn't used (since it's invalid)  which
                                   means he needs to come from a trusted host.
    
           *any*:*passwd*          Anyone  not  listed  above  uses  their regular
                                   login and password.
