NAME
       domain -	nnrpd domain resolver

SYNOPSIS
       domain domainname

DESCRIPTION
       This program can	be used	in readers.conf	to grant access	based on the
       subdomain part of the remote hostname.  In particular, it only returns
       success if the remote hostname ends in domainname.  (A leading dot on
       domainname is optional; even without it,	the argument must match	on
       dot-separated boundaries).  The "username" returned is whatever initial
       part of the remote hostname remains after domainname is removed.	 It is
       an error	if there is no initial part (that is, if the remote hostname
       is exactly the specified	domainname).

EXAMPLE
       The following readers.conf(5) fragment grants access to hosts with
       internal	domain names:

	   auth	internal {
	       res: "domain .internal"
	       default-domain: "example.com"
	   }

	   access internal {
	       users: "*@example.com"
	       newsgroups: example.*
	   }

       Access is granted to the	example.* groups for all connections from
       hosts that resolve to hostnames ending in ".internal"; a	connection
       from "foo.internal" would match access groups as	"foo@example.com".

BUGS
       It seems	the code does not confirm that the matching part is actually
       at the end of the remote	hostname (e.g.,	"domain: example.com" would
       match the remote	host "foo.example.com.org" by ignoring the trailing
       ".org" part).

       Does this resolver actually provide any useful functionality not
       available by using wildcards in the readers.conf(5) hosts parameter?
       If so, the example above	should reflect this functionality.
