Why care?  Does it really help you if you allow it?

Is authd configured to pay attention to outside queries?  The reality of
the problems that can occur with allowing it to be queried from outside
outside, and how easily it's responses can be faked, really means that
it oughtn't to be used outside of a LAN.

And in what way have you allowed it through your router?  You'll
probably have to forward the port through to a specific PC, rather than
just open a hole for it to get through.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
