4.3 TRANSLATION Section

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. The syntax is:

 
---BEGIN TRANSLATION---
translate  [user@]address into  username
...
---END---

address means host name or IP address. You can also specify `0.0.0.0', and it means any address (`INADDR_ANY').

For example:

 
BEGIN TRANSLATION
translate jack@example.net into john
END

This rule will allows the remote user `jack' at `example.net' to use the configuration file of the local user `john'.

In the contrast, this statement:

 
translate example.net into john

means that all users at `example.net' are allowed to use the local john's configuration file.
