        auth_smb - nnrpd Samba authenticator


        auth_smb server [backup_server] domain


        This program does authentication for nnrpd against an SMB server.  It
        passes the received username and password to server for validation in
        the specified SMB domain.  A backup server may optionally be supplied;
        if it is missing, only server is used.
        If authentication is successful, the original username is returned as
        the authentication identity.  Brief errors, including incorrect pass‐
        word and failure contacting the server, are logged.
readers.conf(5) fragment grants access to users who can
        authenticate against an SMB server:
            auth windows {
                auth: "auth_smb pdc.example.com bdc.example.com USERS"
                default-domain: "users.example.com"
            access internal {
                users: "*@users.example.com"
                newsgroups: example.*
        Access is granted to the example.* groups after successful authentica‐


        We should link against an external SMB library rather than maintain one
        within the INN source tree.
