Changing your password
When you are given your username and initial password, the first thing that you
should do is change your password to one that only you know. To do this, login
passwd. You will be prompted to type your old password,
and then to enter your new password twice.
You can control how much information is given out by our server to remote
users by the finger servers. By default, no information will be given out. In
order to change this, create a file called
.finger in your home
directory. This will give out your real name, and whether you are logged in or
not, and the contents of the
.plan file in your home directory, if you
have created one. If a user specifies a long query, eg.
finger -l email@example.com
Then the finger service will also return the contents of the
file, if you have created one. This is a good way of distributing your PGP/GPG
