NAME

       XPAUsers -  Distinguishing Users

SYNOPSIS

       XPA normally distinguishes between users on a given host, but it is
       possible to send data to access points belonging to other users.

DESCRIPTION

       A single XPA name service typically serves all users on a given
       machine.  Two users can register the same XPA access points on the same
       machine without conflict, because the user's username is registered
       with each access point and, by default, programs such as xpaget and
       xpaset only process access points of the appropriate user.  For
       example:

         XPA xpa1 gs 838e2f67:1262 eric
         XPA xpa2 gs 838e2f67:1266 eric
         XPA xpa1 gs 838e2f67:2523 john
         XPA xpa2 gs 838e2f67:2527 john

       Here the users "eric" and "john" both have registered the access points
       xpa1 and xpa2. When either "john" or "eric" retrieves information from
       xpa1, they will process only the access point registered in their user
       name.

       If you want to access another user's XPA access points on a single
       machine, use the \-u [user] option on xpaset, xpaget, etc. For example,
       if eric executes:

         xpaget \-u john xpa1

       he will access John's xpa1 access point.Use "*" to access all users on
       a given machine:

         xpaget \-u "*" xpa1

       Note that the XPA Environment Variable XPA_NSUSERS can be used to
       specify the default list of users to process:

         setenv XPA_NSUSERS "eric,john"

       will cause access points from both "eric" and "john" to be processed by
       default.
