The host access file (by default `/usr/local/etc/gnats/gnatsd.host_access') controls overall access levels on a per-host basis, meaning that settings in this file apply across all databases on the server. Entries in this file are in the following format:
host is the hostname or IP address of the host contacting gnatsd. Wildcard characters are supported: `*' matches anything; `?' matches any single character. By using wildcards, you can specify access levels for entire network subnets and domains.
The second field is the access level of host. The default is
deny. If the user's hostname isn't in the file or its access
level is set to
deny, the connection is closed immediately.
GNATS currently doesn't make use of the third field. Remember to still include the second `:' on the line if you choose to leave the third field empty.
CHDB command is processed (or defaulted), the user's
access level is set to the level for their host, as determined by the
values in the `gnatsd.host_access' file. However, even if a host
is given the
none access level, an individual can still give the
USER command to possibly gain a higher (but never lower) access
than is set for their host. The gnatsd
USER command takes two
USER <userid> <passwd>.
