I see in the nfc.conf file a line for using the Linux
authentication. I have tried uncommenting the line, and
editing it so it would point to the local box, but I must
have screwed something up for I can not get NFC to use
Linux authentication. Can someone please inform me
how to configure this. I am using version 1.07 BETA.

If you could e-mail me the answer that would be great!!

    How can I e-mail you if you are not leaving an e-mail address?
    Why are you submitting a supprt request for something you
    know should already be working?
    Why did you not search the forums before asking a question?
    NFC does not support Linux authentication in the sense that
    anybody with an account on the linux box can login to the
    server. It performes 'linux-like' authentication, where
    usernames and passwords are stored in a password file.
    Passwords are encrypted in that file. You can not use the
    linux passwd file to do this.
    You'll find more info on the 'Administrating chat' thread in the
    open discussion forum:
