I'm having a problem with the EmerAuth.dll and Dnews 5.1a
I running version (from the properties -> versions tab)
Basically I can get it to look up the user in the Emerald database.
I checked the emerauthdnews.log and it said that it connected to the
Emerald Database successfully.
However when I issue a
tellnews test_access <ip address> <Emerald User Name> <Emerald Password>
it says Not Authorized
I checked the emerauthdnews.log right after this and it seems
to have connected to the database ok....but that's all the logging
I can see.
However if I add the same user name the Dnews user.dat file
the connection works fine.

Is there a special account type that I should add in order for this to work?
or does the .dll file just check the database for the user name and pass
and it doesn't care what type of account it is, as long as the account is
active and not expired?
