The ‘TRANSLATION’ section specifies how to translate remote or local user names, or host names or addresses, to local user names. The ‘TRANSLATION’ section is available only in the system configuration file. Syntax:

translate  [user@]address into  username

address means host name or IP address. You can also specify ‘’, and it means any address (‘INADDR_ANY’).

An example:

translate jack@somewhere.net into john

The rule above will allow a remote user ‘jack’ at ‘somewhere.net’ to use the configuration file of the local user ‘john’. Or you can write: ‘translate somewhere.net into john’, and this means that all users at ‘somewhere.net’ are allowed to use the local john's configuration file.
