       /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

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

              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.
