NAME

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

DIRECTIVES

       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".
