If you are using tac_plus from under linux then do the following:

Edit tac_plus.h and look for the following:

/* Define this if you have shadow passwords in /etc/passwd and
* /etc/shadow. Note that you usually need to be root to read
* /etc/shadow */
/* #define SHADOW_PASSWORDS */

Change the

/* #define SHADOW_PASSWORDS */

to just


Recompile tac_plus.

Add the line "default authentication = file /etc/passwd" into the tac_plus configuration file.
