     42== Module Options ==
     43
     44Version 0.17 introduces authentication module options so that each authentication module can specify options to configure its behaviour.
     45The same module may be used with different types of sockets (tcp-auth vs auth), each with a different set of options.
     46For more details see ticket:1159#comment:1.

     48Some examples:
     49* {{{XPRA_PASSWORD=mysecret xpra start --auth=env}}}
     50* {{{SOME_OTHER_ENV_VAR_NAME=mysecret xpra start --auth=env:name=SOME_OTHER_ENV_VAR_NAME}}}
     51* {{{xpra start --auth=password:value=mysecret}}}
     52* {{{xpra start --auth=file:filename=mypasswordfile.txt}}}
     53* {{{xpra start --auth=multifile:filename=userlist.txt}}}
     54
     55The most common used option is the file / multifile filename option, see below.

    4259== Password File ==
    4360
    44 When used without the [/wiki/ProxyServer Proxy Server], the password file can contain a simple password in plain text.
    45 [[BR]]
    46 See [/ProxyServer#FileAuthenticationExtras proxy server file authentication] for more advanced usage.
     61In versions before 0.17, the password file could contain a single password or multiple usernames and passwords. This was confusing and error prone, which is why 0.17 has distinct modules for each use case: file and multifile. See #1159 for details.

     63For more information on the multifile password file format, see [/ProxyServer#FileAuthenticationExtras proxy server file authentication].
