Daylight Worksheet - Server security ...SHOW HINTS

The Daylight servers maintain a list of allowed users similar to but separate from the operating system's. A list of allowed hosts is maintained also. The sthorman program is an administrative tool which can modify this security configuration.

Note that the security configuration is stored in the file specified by environment variable $DY_DATABASE_PASSWORDS_FILE, in our case at /daylight/dy_passwords.dat. You may inspect this file to see the effects of these changes.
