passwd.nntp - passwords for connecting to remote NNTP servers


   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

   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.

   This file should not be world-readable.
