RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for nwclient (redhat section 5)

NWCLIENT(5)				     nwclient				      NWCLIENT(5)

NAME
       nwclient - configuration file for NWClient program suite

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page describes the rather simple format of the file $HOME/.nwclient, the con-
       figuration file for the NWClient program suite.

FILE FORMAT
       The file $HOME/.nwclient consists of several lines, each describing a NWClient connection.
       Lines beginning with # and empty lines are ignored as comments.

       Because	you  can store passwords in .nwclient, the user programs will only scan .nwclient
       when only the file owner has access rights to the file. The file must be have  permissions
       0600.

       To  specify  a  NWClient connection, the name of the file server, the user name to be used
       and a password is  necessary.  The  server  name  and  the  user  name  are  specified  as
       SERVER/USER,  and the password is separated by a blank. The password field can be omitted.
       In this case the user programs will ask you for a password. If you specify the password to
       be just a dash, then no password is used.

       The first valid specification has a special meaning: If the user does not name a server on
       the command line, the first specification is used as a 'preferred connection'.

       An example might be the following:

	  # The preferred connection, the user is asked
	  # for a password
	  FS311/ME
	  # And a passwordless account on another server
	  CD-SERV/GUEST -

       With these lines in $HOME/.nwclient, calling 'ncpmount  /mnt'  will  mount  the	the  file
       server FS311 with user name ME on /mnt after asking the user for a password.

       ncpmount -S cd-serv /cd will silently mount the server cd-serv on /cd.

       nprint,	pqlist	and  other  user  programs  that  require  a  valid  login  also  look up
       $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a password.

       Please note that the access permissions of .nwclient MUST be 600, for security reasons.
