NAME

       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 possibly
       a password.

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