       /etc/isdn/isdnlog.users - user base isdnlog config file


       This  file  is  only  needed  if  isdnlog  is  started with the "-xX" /
       "xisdn=" option. If this file does not exist,  isdnlog  will  create  a
       default  file and print a warning. This file contains information about
       which users are permitted  to  use  isdnlog  clients,  and  what  their
       privileges  are.   This  file  is  checked  every  time a connection to
       isdnlog is made; thus, it is possible to edit this file  and  have  the
       changes effective immediately without having to stop and start isdnlog.

       For now there are no real usable clients  for  isdnlog,  so  this  file
       isn’t very useful at the moment.


       Warning: the format of this file may change in the future.

       Blank lines are ignored. If a line has a "#", this char and the rest of
       the line is ignored as comment. If the last char of a line is a "  line
       and  the  next  line  are  considered  one  line.  These characters are
       considered special: "$@#,;

       The file consists of lines; each line begins with the name of  a  user.
       After  the  user’s name the privileges given to this user are specified
       (on the same line). The following privileges are possible, separated by
       semicolons ";" :

       ALL All  of  the  privileges  below  are given. Should only be given to

           Only information about events  concerning  the  specified  msns  is
           given.   This  includes  incoming  and outgoing calls, and protocol
           information.  Any number of msns may be given. Wildcards  (such  as
           used  in  isdn.conf)  are  permitted.  With  "MSN=*"  all  msns are
           Unknown numbers (e.g. from outgoing calls from other  isdn  devices
           or incoming calls from analog connections) cannot be specified with
           MSN=.  The only way to allow these calls to be seen  is  by  giving

           The   information  specified  to  isdnlog  by  the  -xX  flag  (see
           isdnlog(8)) is allowed.

       I4LCONF (planned)
           This gives permission to change isdn4linux properties. This  should
           only be allowed to root.

       ADDRESSBOOK (planned)
           This  makes  it  possible  to  retrieve / store information about a
           caller or called number.

       At the beginning of the file it  is  possible  to  specify  users  with

           fred@vom.jupiter MSN=4711?

       Here  the  user  "fred"  can  only  connect  to  isdnlog  from the host
       "vom.jupiter".  Similarly, the user "root" is only allowed when on host

       After  the  lines  with  hostnames,  it is possible to define groups of
       users and hostnames. A group looks  like  a  section  as  described  in
       isdn.conf(5). It begins with a line such as:


       and  ends  with the beginning of the next group or the end of the file.
       Group names are not case  sensitive.  In  fact,  group  names  are  not
       actually used (except for [world], see below).

       In  a  group,  lines  consist of a username or a hostname. Lines with a
       username must also contain those privileges  that  the  user  has.   No
       privileges can be listed with a hostname.

           heinz MSN=*;PROTOCOL
           otto MSN=47111,47112

       The  above  example allows the users heinz and otto to connect from any
       of the hosts host1, host2 and host3. The user heinz can see information
       about all msns, user otto can only see information about msns 47111 and

       If anyone is allowed to do anything, then it is enough to put only  the
       following line into the file "isdnlog.users":
