nwbpvalues - Print a NetWare Bindery Propery's contents


nwbpvalues [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C ] [ -o object name ] [ -t type ] [ -p property ] [ -v ] [ -c ]


nwbpvalues prints the contents of a SET property.

nwbpvalues looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a password. See nwclient(5) for more information. Please note that the access permissions of $HOME/.nwclient MUST be 600 for security reasons.



-h is used to print out a short help text.

-S server

server is the name of the server you want to use.

-U user

user is the user name to use for login.

-P password

password is the password to use for login. If neither -n nor -P are given, and the user has no open connection to the server, nwbpvalues prompts for a password.


-n should be given if no password is required for the login.


By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

-o object name

The name of the object to be looked up.

-t object type

The type of the object. Object type must be specified as a decimal value. Common values are 1 for user objects, 2 for group objects and 3 for print queues. Other values are allowed, but are usually used for specialized applications.

-p property

The name of the property to be printed.


For set values, this lists the object id and type of each set member in addition to the object's name. Without this flag, only the name is listed.


Use canonical output, to be used with nwbpset.


nwbpvalues was written by Volker Lendecke with the corresponding Caldera utility in mind. See the Changes file of ncpfs for other contributors.
