nnrpd.track man page

nnrpd.track — file to specify hosts to be tracked by nnrpd.


This file, which is located in <pathetc in inn.conf>, specifies which hosts are to have their activities recorded during an nnrpd session. The nnrpd server reads it when first spawned by innd, provided readertrack in inn.conf is true; otherwise this file is not used.

Entries consist of one host specification per line, each line having two fields, separated by a colon:


The first field is either one of the FQDNs of a host, or a domain name (in  the form *.domain.com).

The second field is simply a segment of text which may be used to more easily identify the client, typically an e-mail address or other identifying mark.
