NAME
zhm - Zephyr HostManager SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/zhm [ -d ] [ -n ] [ -h ] [ -r ] [ -i ] [ -f ] [ -N ] [ server ... ] DESCRIPTION
Zhm is the link between a client machine and the zephyr server. All notices sent from programs on the client are funneled through zhm. This allows all client programs to be much simpler in function, since the HostManager is responsible for handling errors, retransmitting lost notices, and holding all notices until they are acknowledged. The -d option turns on debugging mode, and sends its information to syslog LOG_DAEMON messages. The -n option causes zhm to not attempt to put itself in the background. The -h option causes zhm to send a shutdown message and exit upon delivery of a SIGHUP signal. The normal action on SIGHUP is to send a flush notice to the zephyr server. The -r option causes zhm to send a boot notice to the server and exit when the notice is acknowledged. The -i option indicates that zhm is being started by inetd(8). When this option is specified, zhm assumes that file descriptor zero (0) is bound to the UDP datagram port designated for hostmanager use. In this mode, SIGHUP is handled as if the -h option were specified. The -f option disables the "flush" operation which allows any client to flush all subscriptions for the host. The -N option supresses the initial "boot" message that flushes all subscriptions for the host, which is useful if you're restarting zhm on a host that people are using. The optional server arguments are used to replace the set of server names supplied by the hesiod(3) name server. SEE ALSO

NAME
znol - notify via Zephyr upon login or logout of interesting people SYNOPSIS
znol [ on|off ] [ -f file ] [ -u username ] [ -l ] [ -q ] DESCRIPTION
Znol provides a way for you to be notified when "interesting" people log in or out. It uses the Zephyr(1) Notification Service, which causes a message to appear on your screen for every person specified in a namelist (which defaults to $HOME/.anyone). The namelist should have one login name per line. Any line starting with `#' is considered a comment and ignored. Anyone in the namelist who is logged in when znol is executed is printed to stdout. The control arguments are as follows: on|off Turns notification on or off. -f The namelist file is taken to be file. If file is "-", then the standard input is used instead of a file. If file does not exist, an error message is printed, and znol exits. This option may not be used in conjunction with the -u option. -l Causes znol to just list the people in the namelist who are currently logged in, without subscribing to the login messages. This option may not be used in conjunction with the -q option. -q Disables printing who is currently logged in when subscribing. This option may not be used in conjunction with the -l option. -u Instead of reading a file to specify the "interesting" users, the next argument is used as the only "interesting" user. This option may not be used in conjunction with the -f option. EXAMPLES
znol reads the standard namelist file, prints the locations of any users named therein which can be found on the system, and enters subscrip- tions for notices about those users. znol -l -u foo prints the location (if visible) of the user 'foo'. FILES
