ss5.passwd(5)		      File Formats Manual		 ss5.passwd(5)

NAME
       ss5.passwd - Contains usernames and passwords for user authentication.

SYNOPSIS
       ss5  usually  reads  the	password file, ss5.passwd, in the /etc/opt/ss5
       directory.

DESCRIPTION
       To enable Username/Password authentication with the ss5 daemon you must
       create  a  password  file,  and	modify	the  ss5  configuration	 file,
       ss5.conf.

       In the password file, add one line for each user. Each line should con-
       tain the	username and password for the user, separated by white space.

       In  the ss5 configuration file, add an auth line	to require authentica-
       tion and	allow the user access. For additional  information  about  the
       ss5 configuration file, refer to	the ss5.conf(5)	man page.

       Adding Username/Password	authentication to ss5 requires 3 steps:

	    1.	Create the password file with one entry	per line. To create an
	       entry for the user named	matthew, whose password	is secret, add
	       this line to the	ss5.passwd file:
		    matthew secret

	    2.	Edit  the auth line in the configuration file to require User-
	       name/Password authentication. The configuration file  may  con-
	       tain auth lines such as:
		    auth - - -

	       To  add	username  and password authentication, change the line
	       to:
		    auth - - u

	    3. Restart the server.
