# will cause pppd to consult /etc/passwd after a user has passed this
# Dont be disturbed therfore by the fact that this file defines logins
# any password for users. /etc/passwd will catch passwd mismatches.

# AUTO_PPP bypasses the usual login program so its necessary to list all
# system userids with regular passwords here!
# ATTENTION: The definitions here can allow users to login without a
# password if you dont use the login option of pppd!
# The /etc/ppp/options file installed has the login option enabled
# INBOUND connections
# Every regular user can use PPP and has to use passwords from
* nest.econ ""
# UserIDs that cannot use PPP at all. Check your /etc/passwd and add any
# other accounts that should not be able to use pppd!
