PAM_RHOSTS(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			    PAM_RHOSTS(8)

NAME
     pam_rhosts -- rhosts PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_rhosts [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The rhosts authentication service module for PAM provides functionality for only one PAM
     category: authentication.	In terms of the module-type parameter, this is the ``auth'' fea-
     ture.

   Rhosts Authentication Module
     The Rhosts authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), returns success if and only if
     the target user's UID is not 0 and the remote host and user are listed in /etc/hosts.equiv
     or in the target user's ~/.rhosts.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     debug	 syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn	 suppress warning messages to the user.  These messages include reasons why the
		 user's authentication attempt was declined.

     allow_root  do not automatically fail if the target user's UID is 0.

SEE ALSO
     hosts.equiv(5), pam.conf(5), pam(8)
