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