NAME

       rplay.hosts - rplay host authentication database

SYNOPSIS

       /usr/local/etc/rplay.hosts

DESCRIPTION

       The  rplay.hosts  file  contains a list of hosts and access permissions
       which rplayd uses to validate incoming connections.  Each  line  is  of
       the form:

              hostname[:permission]

       where

       hostname       is  the  name  of  a remote host or a host's IP address.
                      Wildcards can be  used  within  IP  addresses  to  match
                      multiple hosts.  The wildcard character is "*".

       permission     is  an  optional field containing any combination of the
                      following characters:

                      r  the host can read sounds.

                      w  the host can write sounds.

                      x  the host can play, stop, pause, and continue  sounds.
                         This is normally called execute permission.

                      m  the  host  can  monitor  the  audio stream written by
                         rplayd to the audio device.

       "rx" permissions are used when no permissions are specified.

EXAMPLE

       #
       # All hosts have read access:
       #
       *:r

       #
       # Trusted hosts:
       #
       nice-guy.sdsu.edu:rwx
       friend.sdsu.edu:rwx
       amigo.sdsu.edu:rwx
       130.191.224.224:rwx

       #
       # Hosts which can read and execute:
       #
       foo.bar.com:rx
       130.190.*:rx
       146.244.234.*:rx
       using.default.perms.edu

       #
       # Hosts which can monitor the audio stream
       #
       nsa.sdsu.edu:m

BUGS

       The permissions for an "*" entry apply  to  all  matching  hosts.   The
       order  of  this  file  does not matter.  Specific hosts can have access
       disabled with entries like:

       bad.guy.edu:

       however, any matching "*" entries will still apply.
