       /etc/decnet.proxy - DECnet proxy file


       /etc/decnet.proxy is an ASCII file which contains mappings of remote DECnet users to local
       users. It is used by fal(8) when no username and password have been  explicitly  given  to
       determine  whether  a  user  is allowed to access files and also whose files they will get
       access to.

       There is one entry per line, and each line has the following format:

              node::remoteuser localuser

       The field descriptions are:

              node      The name or number of the remote node. If this is a name it  must  appear
                        in  decnet.conf(5)  otherwise  a DECnet node address should be used. This
                        field is a regular expression: If you want to  match  a  single  nodename
                        then you must use the anchors ^ and $ either side of the name.

                        a regular expression that may match one or more remote user names. If you
                        want to match a single user then you must use the anchors ^ and $  either
                        side of the name.

              localuser The name of a user on the local machine or a single asterisk (*) in which
                        case the remote username will be substituted.

              Comments start with a hash mark and continue to the end of that line. They  may  be
              on a dedicated line or following an entry.
