       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".
