NAME

hosts.conf - Access control for Network UPS Tools CGI programs

DESCRIPTION

The CGI programs (upsset.cgi(8), upsstats.cgi(8), upsimage.cgi(8)) use this file to determine if they are allowed to talk to a host. This keeps random visitors from using your web server to annoy others by creating outgoing connections.

DIRECTIVES

MONITOR ups description The ups element is in the form upsname[@hostname[:port]]. To allow connections to a UPS called "snoopy" on a system called "doghouse" that runs upsd on port 7877, it would look like this: MONITOR snoopy@doghouse:7877 "Joe Cool" The description must be one element, so if it has spaces, then it must be wrapped with quotes as shown above. The default hostname is "localhost".
