       upsd.users - Administrative user definitions for NUT upsd

       Administrative  commands  such as setting variables and the instant commands are powerful,
       and access to them needs to be restricted.  This file defines who  may  access  them,  and
       what is available.

       Each  user gets its own section.  The fields in that section set the parameters associated
       with that user's privileges.  The section begins with the name of the  user  in	brackets,
       and continues until the next user name in brackets or EOF.

       Here are some examples to get you started:

			password = mypass
			allowfrom = workstation admhome
			actions = set
			instcmds = all

			password = duh
			allowfrom = gameosbox
			instcmds = fptest

			password = blah
			allowfrom = bigserver
			upsmon master

			password = abcd
			allowfrom = workstation
			upsmon slave


	      Set the password for this user.


	      Grant access to the user based on the source IP address.	The values for this field
	      are the names of your ACLs in the ups.conf(5).


	      Allow the user to do certain things with upsd.  Valid actions are:

		   SET - change the value of certain variables in the UPS

		   FSD - set the forced shutdown flag in the UPS.  This is equivalent to  an  "on
	      battery + low battery" situation for the purposes of monitoring.

	      The list of actions is expected to grow in the future.


	      Let  a  user  initiate  specific instant commands.  Use "ALL" to grant all commands
	      automatically.   Here  are  a  few  instant  commands.   For  the  full  list,  see
	      include/shared-tables.h or check with "upscmd -l".

		   FPTEST - Front panel test

		   BTEST0 - Stop battery test

		   BTEST1 - Start battery test

		   CAL0 - Stop calibration

		   CAL1 - Start calibration


	      Add  the	necessary  actions  for  a upsmon process to work.  This is either set to
	      "master" or "slave".

	      Do not attempt to assign actions to upsmon by  hand,  as	you  may  miss	something
	      important.   This  method  of  designating  a "upsmon user" was created so internal
	      capabilities could be changed later on without breaking existing installations.
