PAM_GUEST(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  PAM_GUEST(8)

NAME
     pam_guest — Guest PAM module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_guest [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
     The guest service module for PAM allows guest logins.  If successful, the
     pam_guest module sets the PAM environment variable GUEST to the login
     name.  The application can check this variable using pam_getenv(3) to
     differentiate guest logins from normal logins.

     The following options may be passed to the pam_guest module:

     guests=list    Comma-separated list of guest account names.  The default
		    is “guest”.	 A typical value for ftpd(8) would be
		    “anonymous,ftp”.

     nopass	    Omits the password prompt if the target account is on the
		    list of guest accounts.

     pass_as_ruser  The password typed in by the user is exported as the
		    PAM_RUSER item.  This is useful for applications like
		    ftpd(8) where guest users are encouraged to use their
		    email address as password.

     pass_is_user   Requires the guest user to type in the guest account name
		    as password.
