DTCPAUTH(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		   DTCPAUTH(8)

NAME
     dtcpauth -- Manipulate POP	Authorization DB

SYNOPSIS
     dtcpauth [-i] [--init]
     dtcpauth [-d] [--delete] user
     dtcpauth [-l] [--list] user | ALL
     dtcpauth [-u] [--user] user [password]

DESCRIPTION
     The dtcpauth allows the super-user	or master POP user to add, delete, or
     reset credential data for a user, or list which records exist.  Only the
     super-user	may initialize the database.

     Under normal usage, dtcpauth prompts for a	new secret, just like the
     passwd program.  It then updates the authorization	DB.

     With the --user or	-u switch, the super-user or master POP	user can cre-
     ate or reset credential data for the specified user.  This	switch allows
     the password to be	specified on the command line, which avoids the	usual
     prompts and checks.  This is mostly useful	in a batch environment,	such
     as	in a script.

     With the --init or	-i switch, the super-user can create a new (or zero
     the existing) authorization DB.

     With the --list or	-l switch, the super-user or master POP	user can ver-
     ify the presence of a record for the indicated user, or list users	who
     have records.  Users can verify the presence of their own records with
     this switch.

     With the --delete or -d switch, the super-user or master POP user can re-
     move a user entry from the	authorization DB.

RETURN VALUES
     dtcpauth will exit	with positive value on errors.

FILES
     /usr/local/etc/qpopper/pop.auth
	       The APOP	authorization database.
