       upsd.conf - Configuration for Network UPS Tools upsd


       upsd  uses this file to control access to the server and set some other
       miscellaneous configuration values.   This  file  contains  details  on
       access  controls,  so  keep  it secure.  Ideally, only the upsd process
       should be able to read it.


       MAXAGE seconds

              upsd usually allows a driver to stop responding  for  up  to  15
              seconds before declaring the data "stale".  If your driver takes
              a  very  long  time  to  process  updates   but   is   otherwise
              operational, you can use MAXAGE to make upsd wait longer.

              Most users should leave this at the default value.

       STATEPATH path

              Tell  upsd  to  look for the driver state sockets in path rather
              than the default that was compiled into the program.

       LISTEN interface port

              Bind a listening port to the interface specified by its Internet
              address.   This may be useful on hosts with multiple interfaces.
              You should not rely exclusively on this for security, as it  can
              be subverted on many systems.

              Listen  on  TCP port port instead of the default value which was
              compiled into the code.  This overrides any value you  may  have
              set  with  'configure --with-port'.  If you don't change it with
              configure or this value, upsd will listen on port 3493 for  this

              Multiple  LISTEN  addresses may be specified.  The default is to
              bind to if no LISTEN addresses are specified (and  ::1
              if IPv6 support is compiled in).

                   LISTEN ::1
                   LISTEN 2001:0db8:1234:08d3:1319:8a2e:0370:7344

       This  parameter  will  only be read at startup.  You'll need to restart
       (rather than reload) upsd to apply any changes made here.


       The  ACL/ACCEPT/REJECT  mechanism  that  existed  in  versions   before
       nut-2.4.0  has been removed. You'll want to use the LISTEN directive to
       limit the addresses the server listens at on  multihomed  systems.   If
       this is not fine grained enough, use a firewall.
