fsp_prof − file for fsp remote login data


The .fsp_prof file contains data for logging in to a remote host over the network for file transfers by fsp commands. This file resides in the user’s current or home directory on the machine initiating the file transfer. A system wide default file will be also used. If passwords are stored in this file, its permissions should be set to disallow read access by group and others (see chmod(1)).

The following tokens are recognized; they may be separated by SPACE or NEWLINE characters (except the host command which has to be on a line of its own):
|machine name | internet-addr [ alias ...]

Identify a remote machine name. The auto-login process searches the .fsp_prof file for a token that matches the alias or hostname given. Once a match is made, the subsequent .fsp_prof tokens are processed, stopping when the EOF is reached or another host token is encountered.
