C.2 Overall gnatsd access level

The overall gnatsd access level is set by starting gnatsd with the option

     -m level or --maximum-access-level=level,

where level is one of the six access levels listed above. This restricts any access to the gnats daemon to levels up to and including level, regardless of the settings in the access control files discussed below. If this option is left out, any access levels set in the access control files will be allowed.

The discussion below assumes that the pre-build configure of gnats was done without altering the default values for the --enable-gnatsd-user-access-file and --enable-gnatsd-host-access-file options. If non-default values were given, substitute as appropriate below.
