RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for hosts.conf (redhat section 5)

HOSTS.CONF(5)				       Network UPS Tools (NUT)					HOSTS.CONF(5)

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.
