Using /etc/shadow to authenticate user

I am using inn version 2.2.3 for a local site. Everything works fine except user
authentication. I start my start-up script (provided by SuSE 7.3) as root to make
sure that /etc/shadow is readable. An entry in nnrp.access looks like:
But a client from 192.168.0.13 e.g. is able to connect without any username or
password. What´s wrong with this config ?
As I read in the man pages I only need to insert a "+" in the third field to enable
(BTW: Using a username and a password in nnrp.access works fine)
Any help much appreciated.
best regards Andreas Gredler
