Hi all,

I just started my ISP, using FreeBSD-2.1.5..... I got my Portmaster, and 
configured everything properly. However, I noticed that another local ISP 
running SunOS, has something calld in.pmd - portmaster daemon. I can't 
seem to figure out how to use it with FreeBSD, or the importance of it 
for that matter! It says I can only use it  with SunOS or Linux. Now, it 
hasn't been a problem, but am I supposed to be adding all of my users into
the Portmaster user table? I figured the portmaster would read my  
/etc/passwd database, but I guess not! This is getting to be a pain 
adding new users to my passwd table, then to the portmaster user table! 
Isn't there a limit on  the amount of users I can have in the table? What
if I get another  Portmaster, will I have to add all of the users from the
first one, into that one too?

TIA for any help anybody can give me!
