NAME

       etc/shutdown - server shutdown control file

DESCRIPTION

       If  the file etc/shutdown is present it describes when a HylaFAX server
       is to be shutdown and may contain a descriptive message  to  return  to
       clients  explaining  the reason for the shutdown.  This file is used by
       the hfaxd(8) program.

       The file has the following format:

              <year> <month> <day> <hour> <minute> <deny> <disconnect>
              <shutdown message text>

       The first line defines the date and time the server should be  shutdown
       and  the  time preceding at which unprivileged clients should be denied
       service or disconnected; these fields  are  described  in  more  detail
       below.   Any  lines  that  follow  the first are taken as the text of a
       message to return  to  clients  when  notifying  them  of  a  scheduled
       shutdown or when denying them service.

       <year>    The decimal year; e.g. 1996.

       <month>   The decimal month; e.g. 10 for October.

       <day>     The decimal day of the month in the range [1..31].

       <hour>    The decimal hour since midnight; in the range [0..23].

       <minute>  The decimal minute after the hour; in the range [0..59].

       <deny>    The  time prior to the shutdown time at which to deny service
                 to unprivileged clients.  This value is specified as  decimal
                 number in the form HHMM; e.g.  130 for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

       <disconnect>
                 Time time prior to the shutdown time at which  to  disconnect
                 unprivileged  clients that are logged in to the server.  This
                 value is specified as a decimal number in the form HHMM.

NOTES

       This file is typically created using the ``SHUT'' command supported  by
       hfaxd(8).
