NAME

       auth_smb - nnrpd Samba authenticator

SYNOPSIS

       auth_smb server [backup_server] domain

DESCRIPTION

       This program does authentication for nnrpd against an SMB server.  It
       passes the received username and password to server for validation in
       the specified SMB domain.  A backup server may optionally be supplied;
       if it is missing, only server is used.

       If authentication is successful, the original username is returned as
       the authentication identity.  Brief errors, including incorrect
       password and failure contacting the server, are logged.

EXAMPLE

       The following readers.conf(5) fragment grants access to users who can
       authenticate against an SMB server:

           auth windows {
               auth: "auth_smb pdc.example.com bdc.example.com USERS"
               default-domain: "users.example.com"
           }

           access internal {
               users: "*@users.example.com"
               newsgroups: example.*
           }

       Access is granted to the example.* groups after successful
       authentication.

BUGS

       We should link against an external SMB library rather than maintain one
       within the INN source tree.
