passwd.nntp(5) [bsd man page]

PASSWD.NNTP(5)                                                  File Formats Manual                                                 PASSWD.NNTP(5)

NAME
passwd.nntp - passwords for connecting to remote NNTP servers DESCRIPTION
The file /etc/news/passwd.nntp contains host-name-password triplets for use when authenticating client programs to NNTP servers. This file is normally interpreted by the NNTPsendpassword routine in libinn(3). Blank lines and lines beginning with a number sign (``#'') are ignored. All other lines should consist of three or four fields separated by colons: host:name:password host:name:password:style The first field is the name of a host, and is matched in a case-insensitive manner. The second field is a user name, and the third is a password. The optional fourth field specifies the type of authentication to use. The default is ``authinfo'' which means that NNTP ``authinfo'' commands are used to authenticate to the remote host. If either the username or password are empty, then the related command will not be sent. (The ``authinfo'' command is a common extension to RFC 977.) For example: ## UUNET needs a password, MIT doesn't. mit.edu:bbn::authinfo uunet.uu.net:bbn:yoyoma:authinfo This file should not be world-readable. HISTORY
