auth "lan" {
	hosts: ""
	default: "<lan>"

auth "localhost" {
	hosts: "localhost,, stdin"
	default: "<localhost>"

access "ok" {
	users: "*"
	newsgroups: "*"
	access: RPA

'users: "*"' contains both "<lan>" and "<localhost>", so as
long as you don't want different access privileges for your
two auth realms, one access realm is enough for both.
