NAME

       porttime - port access time file

DESCRIPTION

       porttime contains a list of tty devices, user names, and permitted
       login times.

       Each entry consists of three colon separated fields. The first field is
       a comma separated list of tty devices, or an asterisk to indicate that
       all tty devices are matched by this entry. The second field is a comma
       separated list of user names, or an asterisk to indicated that all user
       names are matched by this entry. The third field is a comma separated
       list of permitted access times.

       Each access time entry consists of zero or more days of the week,
       abbreviated Su, Mo, Tu, We, Th, Fr, and Sa, followed by a pair of times
       separated by a hyphen. The abbreviation Wk may be used to represent
       Monday thru Friday, and Al may be used to indicate every day. If no
       days are given, Al is assumed.

EXAMPLES

       The following entry allows access to user jfh on every port during
       weekdays from 9am to 5pm.

       *:jfh:Wk0900-1700

       The following entries allow access only to the users root and oper on
       /dev/console at any time. This illustrates how the /etc/porttime file
       is an ordered list of access times. Any other user would match the
       second entry which does not permit access at any time.

       console:root,oper:Al0000-2400 console:*:

       The following entry allows access for the user games on any port during
       non-working hours.

       *:games:Wk1700-0900,SaSu0000-2400
