axspawn.conf — Control the operation of axspawn.

Description

The axspawn.conf file controls the operation of the axspawn(8) program. The operation of the config file can best be seen in an example:

# this is /etc/ax25/axspawn.conf
#
# allow automatic creation of user accounts
create    yes
# allow empty password field (so user may login via telnet, too) [default no]
create_empty_password       no
#create_empty_password       yes
# create with system utility useradd(8)? [default no]
#create_with_useradd  no
create_with_useradd  yes
#
# pwcheck method: password or call or group. [default: password]
#pwcheck call
#pwcheck group
pwcheck password
#
# guest user if above is 'no' or everything else
# fails. Disable with "no"
guest     guest
#
# group id or name for autoaccount
group     hams
#
# first user id to use
first_uid 400
#
# maximum user id
max_uid   2000
#
# where to add the home directory for the new user
home      /home/hams
#
# secure homedirectories (g-rwx)
#secure_home yes
#
# user's shell (if not configured, it's /bin/bash, or if
# create_with_useradd is set, useradd uses the shell
# configured in /etc/default/useradd).
shell     /bin/bash
#
# bind user id to callsign for outgoing connects.
associate yes

The “associate” option has to be used with great care. If a user logs on it removes any existing callsign from the translation table for this userid and replaces it with the callsign and SSID of the user. This will happen with multiple connects (same callsign, different SSIDs), too. Unless you want your users to be able to call out from your machine disable “associate”.
