I believe that you're being bitten by the same issue as ticket:1264#comment:7 : you have to use absolute paths for filenames when the server daemonizes. r15488 now allows relative file paths. (please always specify what version you are running)

Relevant excerpts from the proxy's "-d auth" log output should look like this:

init_auth(..) auth class=None, tcp auth class=('multifile', <class 'xpra.server.auth.multifile_auth.Authenticator'>, {'filename': 'multifile.txt'}), ssl auth class=('multifile', <class 'xpra.server.auth.multifile_auth.Authenticator'>, {'filename': 'multifile.txt'}), vsock auth class=None
Authentication required by multi password file authenticator module
 sending challenge for username 'ubuntu1' using hmac+sha512 digest
processing authentication with multi password file, response=f919cd5..., client_salt=646261..., challenge_sent=True, digest_modes=['hmac', 'xor', 'hmac+whirlpool', 'hmac+sha512', 'hmac+sha384', 'hmac+sha256', 'hmac+sha224', 'hmac+sha1', 'hmac+sha', 'hmac+ripemd160', 'hmac+md5', 'hmac+md4', 'hmac+ecdsa-with-SHA1', 'hmac+dsaWithSHA', 'hmac+dsaEncryption', 'hmac+SHA512', 'hmac+SHA384', 'hmac+SHA256', 'hmac+SHA224', 'hmac+SHA1', 'hmac+SHA', 'hmac+RIPEMD160', 'hmac+MD5', 'hmac+MD4', 'hmac+DSA-SHA', 'hmac+DSA']

authentication challenge passed

@Denis01: please close if that works for you. Please also edit the title: AFAIK, this has nothing to do with auth=allow.
