my problem sounds trivial, but isn't. I can not login to my cups server

net and mailing lists, but none of the hints and tipps worked for me.
First I will describe what I've already did.
1) ensured local BSD lpd is not running
2) on a prior installed system where cups is up and running printing is
possible but no administration (see subject), so the problem seems to

5) deleted all ports cups-* and /usr/local/cups folder and reinstalled
cups, ensured having nothing left in /usr/local/etc
The problem occured out of the blue to me, I possibly missed some
changes within the last row of updates.
Can anyone help?
Please eMail me since I'm not subscriber of the "question" list.
Thanks in advance,
Check /usr/local/etc/pam.d/cups -- change it to use pam_unix rather than
pam_unknown. (pam_unknown is, errr..., unknown on FreeBSD...)
auth required pam_unix.so nodelay
account required pam_unix.so
