       netgroup - list of network groups

       File  defines  network-wide groups, and is used for permission checking
       when executing remote mounts, remote logins, and	 remote	 shells.   For
       remote  mounts,	the  information  in  classifies  machines; for remote
       logins and remote shells, it classifies users.

       Each line of the file defines a group.  The items on a line may be sep‐
       arated  by  a  combination of one or more spaces or tabs.  The line has
       the format

	      groupname member1 member2 ...

       where memberi is either another group name, or a triple.

       If any of these three fields is left empty, it  signifies  a  wildcard.

       defines a group to which everyone belongs.  Field names that begin with
       something other than a letter, digit or	underscore  (such  as  do  not
       match any value.	 For example, consider the following entries.

       Machine	belongs	 to the group in the domain but no users belong to it.
       Similarly, the user belongs to the group in the domain but no  machines
       belong to it.

       Note,  the  domainname  field  must  match  the current domain name (as
       returned by the command), or the entry is not matched.  Also, the user‐
       name field is ignored for remote mounts.	 Only the hostname and domain‐
       name are used.

       The Network Information Service (NIS) can serve network	groups.	  When
       it does, the groups are stored in the following NIS maps:
