nwclient - configuration file for NWClient program suite DESCRIPTION
This manual page describes the rather simple format of the file $HOME/.nwclient, the configuration 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 pos- sibly a password. Please note that the access permissions of .nwclient MUST be 600, for security reasons. SEE ALSO

pqlist - List available NetWare print queues SYNOPSIS
pqlist [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ pattern ] DESCRIPTION
pqlist lists all the NetWare print queues available to you on some server. If you are already connected to some server, this one is used. If pqlist does not print to a tty, the decorative header line is not printed, so that you can count the printing queue available on your server by doing pqlist -S server | wc -l pqlist looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access permissions of .nwclient MUST be 600, for security reasons. OPTIONS
pattern pattern is used to list only selected queues. You can use wildcards in the pattern, but you have to be careful to prevent shell inter- pretation of wildcards like '*'. -h -h is used to print out a short help text. -S server server is the name of the server you want to use. -U user name If the user name your NetWare administrator gave to you differs from your unix user-id, you should use -U to tell the server about your NetWare user name. -P password You may want to give the password required by the server on the command line. You should be careful about using passwords in scripts. -n -n should be given to mount shares which do not require a password to log in. If neither -n nor -P are given, pqlist prompts for a password. -C By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C. SEE ALSO
