CONSERVER.PASSWD(5)		   conserver		   CONSERVER.PASSWD(5)

NAME
       conserver.passwd	- user access information for conserver(8)

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  op-
       tional  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 lo-
			       gin and password.

BUGS
       There is	currently no way provided by the conserver package to generate
       the  encrypted  password	 strings  besides copying them from the	system
       passwd database or running crypt(3) via C or perl or  some  other  lan-
       guage that supports it.
