But it is a perfect example.  You do not need to be in the passwd file to use
pserver.  Furthermore, even if you wanted to be in the passwd file, you surely
do not want to have all your access mapped to user aph, per the current setup.
If you want a passwd entry, your entry should be simply

    tausq:<md5 or crypt crypted passwd>

Try removing the passwd entry and using pserver.  It should still work since
you have a system account and your access will happen as _you_, not aph.
