Readers.conf and auth access

Hi all,

i'm trying to setup auth access for INN 2.4 on Linux, but i'm getting errors
trying to access with authentication. My readers.conf is setup as below:

auth "authusers" {
        hosts: *
        auth: "/usr/lib/news/bin/auth/passwd/ckpasswd -f /etc/news/innauth"
        default: "<authusers>"

access "authusers" {
        users: "<authusers>"
        read: "*, !junk, !control*, !local*"
        post: "*"

The strange thing it's that if i try to auth myself i don't get access. If i
try to connect without authentication i can get full access. Maybe it's a
simple mistake in my configuration, but i've tried many configuration
without success. .... Who can help me?

Thanks and Regards
